August 11, 2010: Hatena Featured Artist - Tasogare (id:ningen_gumi)


Welcome to the Hatena Featured Artist section of our blog, where we introduce Flipnote creators from around the world.

We post the Hatena Featured Artist every week on Wednesday, and hope to introduce a variety of different artists that will inspire and entertain you.

Be sure to check back here every Wednesday to see some of the most amazing artists on Flipnote Hatena. Maybe we'll even feature you someday!

Today's Hatena Featured Artist is Tasogare (id:ningen_gumi) from Japan.

Please introduce yourself and let us know how you get ideas for your Flipnotes.

Hello! My creator name is Tasogare. I get ideas for my Flipnotes from doodles that I make in the margins of my notebooks. I often get ideas before I go to bed, so I always have to be careful not to stay up too late thinking about new ideas!

What do you do in your free time?

I like to create large illustrations, usually on 728mm × 1030mm (approximately 28 x 40 inch) panels. I also have a old guitar that was given to me by a friend that I enjoy playing.

What kind of Flipnotes do you want/like to create?

I am interested in creating Flinotes that require the viewer to use their imagination, that confuses and surprises them or that are strange and in some ways imperfect. I also want to create unusual music that lifts the emotions of the viewer.

Is there something you would like to say to the Flipnote Hatena community?

I really enjoy seeing everyone's Flipnotes, and hope that you are all healthy and take care yourselves! Thank you very much for all of your support.
