Hello, I'm from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, and I studied about shipbuilding in university. Currently, I am working and continuing my education.

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

I like skateboarding and listening to music. I also take street photos and portraits of people with my film camera. I make electronic music on my original Nintendo Gameboy, and enjoy drawing too.

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

★ I posted this for Weekly Topic: Frozen, and it was the first Flipnote that I ever made.

★ I often make short Fipnotes and do not save them, but this one is an exception.

★ I love the analog sounds in this animation.

★ This is a joke I made for my friend Vlad.

★ This Flipnote is about walking in heavy snow, which is something I love to do.

★ For this animation I used my girlfriend's voice, and the music was made on her out of tune piano.

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

My Flipnotes are concise but informative. Brevity is the soul of wit.

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

The animations I make now are very simple. In the future, I would like to make more complex and detailed animations.
