Today's Hatena Featured Artist is kengo (id:kengokengo) from Japan.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hello, my name is Kengo. I like to draw and make Flipnotes.

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

Lately I have been watching a lot of anime. I try to watch as many different titles as I can.

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

★ This is the first Flipnote where my chicken character appeared. It was difficult to animate the falling cherry-blossoms.

★ This Flipnote also features my chicken character, and I think the result is funny.

★ I made this Flipnote to celebrate the new year.

★ The Japanese text at the end of this Flipnote says "You can overcome your troubles in life".

★ I wanted to make a Flipnote with a girl character. Do you like the cherry-blossom tree?

★ This is the first Flipnote I posted, and I was satisfied with the result.

What techniques or skills are you especially good at in your Flipnotes?

I think I am quite good at animating birds.

What are some techniques or skills that you wish to improve, try, or learn to do in order make your Flipnotes better?

I would like to get better at animating humans.

Please introduce some of your favorite artists on Flipnote Hatena and tell us why you like them or their Flipnotes.

★ I think Hatch (season02) can animate anything well, including people and animals.

★ I like the stylish and cute Flipnotes by Isoflavone (eikaisan).

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

Thank you all for watching my Flipnotes. I am a bit slow at posting new ones, but I hope you will continue to enjoy my animations.
