The mystery artist who created a Pokemon fan artwork and a fan-designed poster has revealed his motives in an interview.
In an interview with The Jerusalem POST, artist Hani Azzam from the Jerusalem Art Center revealed that he had created the fan art as part of a series called ‘I Don’t Feel Like Playing’ for the anime, Pokemon: The Movie.
It was a one-off art project that Azzaman had created in order to promote the upcoming Pokemon: Myriad Colors movie.
The original poster for Pokemon: Pokemon Red and Blue was created by Azzamon, who shared the work on Instagram.
According to Azzamen, the artwork was inspired by his own childhood memories.
It depicts Pokemon characters in different states of sleep and excitement.
Azzam told the Jerusalem Post that he initially drew the Pokemon characters with chalk and used a pencil to make them larger and bolder.
The work was inspired after he played Pokemon: Blue and saw that Pikachu’s tail was red and sparkly.
“When I saw the red and blue Pikachu, I immediately knew that this is a good opportunity for my Pikachu to become a Pikachu fan art,” Azzamas said.
A large number of fans have created fan art using Azzamaras Pokemon artwork.
In the interview, Azzammans motivations for creating the artwork were also discussed.
“I think my interest is in what my fans have to say about the game,” Azzaam told The Jerusalem PIX news site.
“If they have a passion for the series, then I would like to show them that they can express their love.”
Azzaman said that the artwork had also been inspired by the anime’s popular Pokemon fan film series.
“The main thing is to tell people that the anime is a work of art, not just an anime,” Azziamen said.
“It’s about creating an art for people to share their passion.”
Azam told his story to the Jerusalem POST on Tuesday, but did not elaborate on why he decided to create the artwork.
Azzams creative process began in earnest after he visited the Pokemon Art Center in September, and he said that he began to work on the art project in earnest in late September.
“The Pokemon series is so big in Japan, I had to learn Japanese, so I took a trip to Tokyo to meet the Pokemon artists,” Azzyamen said, adding that the Pokemon fandom was one of the most important aspects of the series.
Azzyam said that a few weeks later, he was approached by a man who approached him with the same request: “You should make an art piece about Pokemon.
The man told Azzamin that he was a fan of Pokemon and wanted to use his art as a means of promoting the anime.
“He told me that he saw a fan art by a friend of mine and wanted me to create a piece for him,” Azam said.
The man then asked if Azzamia could help him with his design.
Azzaamon agreed and went ahead with the design.
“This fan art was actually created to promote Myriad Color,” Aazzam said, referring to the upcoming movie, Pokemon Red or Blue.
“In order to create this piece, I went to a Japanese museum and showed it to a few of the artists and the person that asked the most was Meigu, the artist that drew the Pikachu poster.”
Meigu was Azzami’s teacher and friend.
“I think it’s important to know that you can do this work for any artist and that you should do it for any fans,” Meigut told Azzyam.
“For him to help me make it, I thank him.
I am very grateful.”
Meigo, the person who created the poster, told the outlet that he believes Azzamina’s work was a collaboration between the two of them.
“We met on a couple of occasions when I was working on Myriad,” Meigo told The POST.
“He has been in contact with me and told me he’s working with Azzamo on this project.”
Azziaman, who also works at the Jerusalem PEN, said that it is possible for the two to collaborate on the fan artwork.
“There are many people who are interested in creating fan art, but they can’t because of copyright issues,” he said.
“Meigut was the one who asked me to make this work.
The reason for this is that we met at the Pokemon Convention in August, and I got a chance to meet him and he asked me for help.
I wanted to make sure he understood my work and gave me permission,” Azzo said.
The Jerusalem PIL has asked the Jerusalem Public Security Bureau to confirm if the man who took part in the request is Meigū, or if it is someone else.
