Haven’t done a selfie on here in forever! Hello everyone! Happy Thursday!
If you mainly keep up with Supersonic on your Tumblr Dashboard (which 99% of you do) you’ll have missed the redesign to Supersonic’s web appearance!
With the redesign it’s easier to find Supersonic’s best posts and to navigate from post to post (back & next buttons!). I’ve also completely redesigned the “About" page. Take a trip off the dashboard and check it out!
Jeff Hamada (That’s him up top, sitting next to the river) over at BOOOOOOOM.COM recently emailed me about a project he was doing with Herschel Supply called “Drawing on the Past" where artists are given a small space to draw a person, place or thing that has affected their lives in a positive way. He was curious if I’d like to participate, I said "sure!" immediately.
My contribution to the project, however, is a smaller part of a much larger community driven project which anyone can now enter over on BOOOOOOOM. Lucky contributors will have their work shown on the BOOOOOOM blog and a number of entries will even be chosen for an art show in Vancouver that will be showcasing selected submissions as well as other artist’s contributions. You can find out how to enter right here.
For his own entry, Jeff drew inspiration from his childhood sleeping bag he’d take to summer camp and a physical recreation of this took form with the help of Herschel Supply and some illustration by Andrea Wan as a limited edition Booooooom Bag which will be released July 9th and available here. Three lucky submissions to the project will receive one of these bags. (Having received one myself I can say, wholeheartedly, it is AWESOME.)
With my piece for the project I chose a place and that place was San Francisco (The cityscape above) because of all the things it’s offered me and the people I’ve met there. Visiting San Francisco for the first time in 2009, I decided to devote this blog - at the time just a personal blog - entirely to art. Since then my life has changed wildly and wonderfully thanks to that little visit. I’ve also been lucky enough to have three art shows devoted to Supersonic hosted there at Spoke Art (And a 4th in January 2015!), I’ve met some of the best friends I’ve ever had and I’ve even fallen in love there. Those being just a few of the many reasons I chose it as my subject.
I’m looking forward to seeing all the entries! Go enter! You can check out a video below of Jeff talking about the project and his ideas behind designing the limited edition bag:
