September 1, 2010: Hatena Featured Artist - HIROSHI (id:hiroshi-0)


Welcome to the Hatena Featured Artist, 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 HIROSHI (id:hiroshi-0) from Japan.

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

Hi! My name is HIROSHI and I live in south part of Kyoto, Japan.

I practice Shorinji Kempo (a type of martial art), and I get my ideas from zen meditation and deep concentration.

Actually, I'm joking!

I usually get the inspiration for my Flipnotes from movies, TV, music, and games.

What do you do in your free time?

I like playing online games and watching motor-sport events on television. I basically enjoy all types of motor sports! Oh, and meditation too -- just kidding!

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

I would like to create a Flipnote that pushes all of my ideas, drawing skills and artistic sense to their extremes. I often stop making my Flipnotes before they are completed because I get busy with other things, and sometimes post them without putting in my maximum effort.

What Nintendo DSi games have you played recently and which one is your all-time favorite?

I like Dragon Quest IX, and I often play it when I have free time. The Gran Turismo Series is one of my favorite games too. Since I am a big fan of motor sports I enjoy most types of racing games.

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

I hope that everyone can have fun creating Flipnotes and sharing their creative ideas with the whole world!
