OPEN CALL: @Booooooom Instagram Takeover

Each takeover will be a triptych (3 consecutive photos in our feed), ideally these images relate to each other in some way either visually or conceptually. There will be room to caption each image so you could potentially tell a short story or describe an experience in 3 parts.

If you are interested, leave a comment below with a full link to your Instagram account, the images you’d like to share, and a sentence explaining your triptych.

Instagram of the Day: 75-Year-Old Grandpa Posts a Drawing a Day for His Grandkids

What’s Astro doing? He’s touching grandpa’s nose and saying “nose, nose, nose!”

 

Drawings For My Grandchildren is the Instagram account of Chan Jae Lee, a 75-year-old Korean man and artist based in Brazil. Separated from his grandchildren who live in Korea and New York, Chan started using Instagram after his son insisted it would be a better use of his retirement than watching television.

While Chan initially shot down the idea, the birth of his youngest grandchild, Astro, made him realize that he won’t always be around to see his grandchildren grow up and agreed to create the account as a kind of virtual gift to them.

Helped along by his wife (who writes the captions for each post) Chan has completed a drawing a day, sharing everything from family memories and everyday moments to random thoughts and life lessons. Check out more of Chan’s heartwarming work below!
