Booooooom is many things: part online magazine, part artists' community and membership organization, and part shop. Started in 2008 as a blog by Vancouver-based artist Jeff Hamada, the site has since become Canada's largest online art platform. On the website, visitors can view an archive of articles covering topics such as drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as artist spotlights (featuring one particular creator's work). Readers have multiple browsing options. The homepage catalogs posts by recency and the entire website can be searched by keyword using the query bar next to the site title. To view post categories (e.g. design or film), click the icon of three horizontal lines just to the right of the query bar. For example, the Photography category includes compilations like "A Year in Photos," cataloging remarkable images from 2009-2019. While membership requires a fee, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic Booooooom has made access to its Slack channel (normally reserved for members) free to all. More information about this service is available on the Membership page. The site also recently published "COVID-19 Crisis Resources for Creatives: A Giant List of Helpful Links for Artists," organized into resources available Worldwide, in Canada, and in the U.S. This post is located in the Art section.
