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 Limelight (id:Limelight) from the Americas region.

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

Hi, my name is Chris. I'm 13 years old and I live in California.

I usually get ideas for my Flipnotes when I look the at the things around me and get some random, crazy, or funny ideas from what I see. Sometimes, I also get ideas from my little brother.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time, I draw a lot of cartoons (mainly just comic strips) or play video games. I also write short stories from time to time.

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

Nearly all of my Flipnotes are short, funny, and random, so I would like to try to make more serious Flipnotes, such as a mystery story. However, whenever I try to make those kinds of Flipnotes, they usually end up as a big mess or become a funny Flipnote anyway!

For this reason I think I'll continue making the kinds Flipnotes I'm doing right now. I also have an idea for a Flipnote I'd like to make about time travel, but the story is difficult to understand, so I'd like to plan that some more before I start it.

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

I would like to thank all my fans! I would never be where I am if I didn't have such awesome fans. Also I would like to thank all the friends I made on Hatena and Hatena itself and their staff. Have a nice day!
