Booooooom

Published


Booooooom was created by a Vancouver artist, Jeff Hamada, in an attempt to foster a community of people excited to go out and be creative! When did you start out blogging?
I started Booooooom in 2008.

How did you choose your blog name?
I just wanted to pick something ridiculous, I hoped that if it was included in a whole list of other sites that it would stand out and people would wonder if it was actually a real website.

What's it all about and why?
Booooooom is about encouraging artists to continue making art. I try to focus a lot on emerging talents, and works by people that are relatively unknown. It's meant to be an opportunity for anyone out there to encounter art without all the elitest attitude.

What do you do when you're not blogging?
I take photos and ride my bike quite a bit.

If you could be in one place in the world right now, where would it be?
Heading into summer Vancouver is one of the most beautiful places to be, so I'm happy to stay right here.
