Nov. 10, 2010: Hatena Featured Artist - HARRY (id:jago12-345)


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 HARRY (id:jago12-345) from the Europe & Oceania region.

How you get ideas for your Flipnotes, and how long does it usually take you to create them?

I get the most of my ideas in the evening when I'm laying in bed before I fall asleep. For me, it is important to make Flipnotes by using my own ideas.

The time it takes to make my Flipnotes is usually 4-5 hours and sometimes up to 10-15 hours or more.

What hobbies or interests do you have (besides making Flipnotes)?

I play tennis and football. And of course, I also like playing games on my Nintendo DSi or on my computer.

Who are some of your favorite creators on Flipnote Hatena and why?

There are so many really good creators here on Flipnote community, and there's not enough space here in this interview to write all the names. In the list of my favorite creators, you can find some really good creators.

Do you have any advice or tips for other Flipnote creators about how they can improve their skills?

Learning from doing. That's the way I did.

What kind of Flipnotes would you like to create in the future? Are there any new things you would like to try?

I don't really know at the moment. It depends on the ideas I'll get in the future.

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

First, a big THANKS to all the people out there who support me and my work. Thank you very much.

Please do not only watch the Flipnotes in the most popular section. Check out the different channels too. There are so many interesting Flipnotes there, new Flipnotes and most popular Flipnotes, old and new ones.
