Booooooom Reader Submissions / December

december-600

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the November Submissions post. Nearly 1200 comments on the post, so I’m definitely still going through all the good stuff shared there.

This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.

Drawing On The Past: Submissions Gallery

Here it is, at long last, all of the digital submissions to our “Drawing On The Past” art project in collaboration with Herschel Supply. If you somehow missed it, I asked people to submit drawings of people, places, and things, that positively affected their lives.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part! The artworks you all sent in were terrific but I was blown away by some of the intensely personal stories many of you shared. I loved reading through them all, and at our art show here in Vancouver (photos here), many people came over to me to share their favourite stories. It was cool to see people actually connecting with the art on the wall (this is something I don’t often see at art shows for some reason).

Sorry it’s taken so long to get all these submissions published, but I think when you see how many there are, and imagine typing them all out, you’ll understand. Big thanks to my sister for helping transcribe all the handwritten stories.

 

 

THE SUBMISSIONS 

lostboy-finn

My mother told me about this true story of a family of crows in our backyard. A young crow fell from the nest and got stuck. They never stopped crowing. They got my mother’s attention and she got the young crow free. My mother’s way of showing how unrelentless her love is for me and our family was narrating this story. She told me that like a family of crows, even if one strays away, she’ll never give up on them. My family (including my ancestry) has evolved in so many ways but the traditional ways in which family is vital and strong has never wavered. I am a queer gender-fluid artist and my family of crows (present and past) loves me no matter what. That love will always be present and I can belong.

Name: Lost Boy
