For the past few weeks our good friends over at Booooooom have been running a killer art contest called the Remake Project. The contest invited people to create modern interpretations of iconic artworks including paintings, photography, and sculpture. Submissions ended last week and I was honored to be one of seven guest judges helping to winnow the field of hundreds down to just 10 finalists. It was a nearly impossible task to pick just ten, as almost every single submission was impeccably executed and thoughtful. Now it’s your turn to vote. Pick your favorite and you’ll be entered to win a prize pack from Booooooom. If you haven’t seen all the entries I strongly urge you check them out, this is seriously one of the best pages on the internet right now.
