May 23, 2012: Hatena Featured Artist - ¡EnCiSo! (id:Enciso)


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 here every week to see some of the most amazing artists on Flipnote Hatena. Maybe we'll even feature you someday!

Today's Hatena Featured Artist is ¡EnCiSo! (id:Enciso) from the Americas region.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hey! I'm from a wicked cool city in Massachusetts. I'm 18 and will go to college soon to become an awesome high school art teacher. I have a big family and the youngest member is my cat Chester. He's only 3 and I think he's the best cat ever.

What are your interests or hobbies, and how do you spend your free time?

I love drawing, painting, taking pictures, and fashion. Fashion is my passion and I'm really into fashion photography. Most of my drawings and paintings are inspired by fashion. I also love politics, video games, Mexican soccer, nature, people, and cats.

Please introduce some of your best Flipnotes, and tell us why you like them.

★ This Flipnote only took a few minutes to make.

★ This is an animation of my little kitten sleeping.

★ I made this Flipnote when I was working at an ice cream shop.

★ I forgot to mention that I love Lucha Libre! (Editor's note: Lucha Libre is a type of professional wrestling in Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries.)

I want to improve my imagination. I often have trouble coming up with creative ideas.
