Hello! Nice to meet you. I am a Flipnote creator from Japan and call myself "Gram".

Along with making Flipnotes I also like listening to songs and looking at paintings.

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

★ This is one of the first Flipnotes I made. I posted this for the weekly topic "Snow Fun".

★ I animated a figure running in this Flipnote.

★ I tried to make this Flipnote in a Chinese style.

★ It was challenging to draw the frog jumping out of the bag in this animation.

★ This is an old Flipnote I made where I tried to create a lot of action.

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

I am fast at drawing and can finish my Flipnotes quickly.

I am not so good at finding the balance between the details for my drawings and movements.

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