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 mrjohn (id:mrjohn) from the Europe and Oceania region.

Please tell us about yourself.

I’m an identical twin who loves cats, and lives in the south west of England.


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

As well as making Flipnotes, I like to create and build models. I’m also interested in film special effects. While I’m working I like to listen to audio books.

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

I think I’m good at creating smooth realistic movement, and I’m good at working with photographs too. I’m happy with my ideas as well.


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

I would like to do more character work and be able to focus on performance. I’d also like to develop my use of sound further.

Please introduce some of your favorite artists on Flipnote Hatena

These are three of my favorite Flipnote Hatena artists and my favorite flips of their’s.

Joni (id:hattukatti)

★ “Zoom In” – When Joni explained how he made this flip to me, it increased my Flipnote abilities ten fold.

Simon (id:simon-a)

★ “Accidental Ood” – This was such a clever Dr. Who joke. He’s quite the comedy writer.

katt (id:katt2)

★ “Busy line” – A jaunty song this one. Katts flips make me feel joyful.

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

I feel very pleased to have a great community of people to be part of, who are so enthusiastic about animation. I think we should reward new flips more than spin offs. Hatena Rocks!
