Best of Instagram: Week 17

It’s been awhile since I did a Best of Instagram post! Once again I tried to find photographers with smaller followings. Everyone here has less than 1000 followers with the exception of Pavielle. Caitlyn posted a link to her Instagram in the Week 16 Post and I was surprised to find she only has 60 followers (let’s change that!).

Guest posters are always taking over our @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can definitely connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. You can and should also leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

Instagram Takeover: Andrew Hem

andrewhem-instagram

This week the @Booooooom Instagram account is being handed over to artist Andrew Hem. I’ve been following Andrew’s work for some time now, so it’s a real treat to have him take the reins.

The LA-based painter has a solo show opening at Merry Karnowsky Gallery on March 8th so maybe we’ll see some sneak peeks of work for that show. Follow along on our account and be sure to follow Andrew’s personal account.

Instagram Takeover: Luis Alberto Perez

LAP-500

This week the @Booooooom Instagram account has been taken over by a relatively unknown artist from Puerto Rico, Luis Alberto Perez. The artist has quite a unique drawing style, which I’m sure will garner much more recognition this coming year. Follow along on our account and be sure to follow Perez’s personal account.

Instagram Takeover: Gemma O’Brien

gemmaobrieninstagram

This week the @Booooooom Instagram is being handed over to Sydney-based typographer Gemma O’Brien. Normally I’d put the person’s name over top of the intro image with a font but it would be an injustice to do so here as the beauty of Gemma’s work is that it is hand-lettered.

She recently had a brilliant solo show which featured her illustrations on barf bags called “You Make Me Sick”. Her job this week is to have fun and inspire you and I’m sure she will do lots of both. Please give her a warm welcome.

My friend artist Yue Wu has started a fun series of drawings on his Instagram (@wuyue5). Each day he draws the things that he likes on Instagram, and the drawings are tagged so you can click through to the original account and look for the photo.

Booooooom Project: #FriendlyGangSigns

friendlygangsigns-500

 

Today we launch a new Booooooom project #FriendlyGangSigns.

Here are the instructions:

1. Use your hands to make letters and take photos of them.

2. Arrange the photos to spell out a message. It could be something funny, your New Year’s resolution, life motto, a love letter, anything. You can certainly make something more creative than the two images here (I spent a grand total of 10 minutes making them).

3. Share your magnificent creation on Instagram, and be sure to hashtag #FriendlyGangSigns and tag @Booooooom.

Please submit square format photos. There’s a free app called framemagic that allows you to arrange a 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, even a 5×5 square. Another option is to just screenshot your camera roll.

You can use filters, but don’t go overboard.

The most creative, funny, thought-provoking, submissions will be shared on Booooooom. Two winners will be picked on January 20th and each will snag the entire collection of tees I designed for Aritzia.
