Illustrator loundraw announced on Friday that he has established his own animation studio called Flat Studio.

loundraw has been active as an illustrator since his teens. He has been drawing book novel covers and manga art, including Kimi no Suizou wo Tabetai, which received an anime adaptation and where loundraw was involved as an original character designer. He was also involved in producing Kimi no Iru Basho, Tsuki ga Kirei, and an anime promotional video to Boku wa Robot-goshi no Kimi ni Koi wo Suru. For his university graduation project, he produced a trailer to Yume ga Sameru made hypothetical movie, which had actual seiyuu; Sora Amamiya and Hiro Shimono voiced the characters. Drawings of the works loundraw is involved with often receive a lot of attention due to his use of color transparency and careful interior designs that incorporate depth of field.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Hope he doesn't go the easy route, we need good series!

Oh, so this is the guy who made the promotional art of Tsuki ga Kirei look like some sort of Shinkai flick.

Good luck to him.

Ayyy nice! He's immensely talented and deserves a larger platform. It's nice that he's finally trying to make it big. It's gonna be tough from here on, but best wishes to him.

It is just mind blowing what loundraw is achieving. I had been following his art for a long long time. Just is amazing how a young man like him is single-handedly achieving so much. Best of luck for your future endeavors, Although it is really a shame to see less of his art these days, becoz of his busy schedule i guess.

Guy seems like a bright young star but I wonder if he's up to the task. You might be a great talent but am I wrong to think you're just kind of in the shadow of Shinkai?
