During PAX last year, Nintendo asked any professional artists who happened to be there to create an animation in the DSiWare program Flipnote Studio
. Now, the flipnotes from comic artists like Eric Jones and Christina Strain, webcomics artist Scott Kurtz
, and 5TH Cell art director Edison Yan, have finally been posted in a gallery on the Flipnote Hatena
Showing what can be done in a few minutes by a talented artist, and building on the excitement of a popular convention, makes this initiative a great promotional tool for the free app (and for the DSi in general), which is why Nintendo waited until six months after the event to release these!
