week #44 – @hjalti / Hjalti


Who are you and where do you come from?
My name is Hjalti Hjálmarsson and I’m a 29 year old animator from Iceland.

Share your twitter account with us and tell us what you are tweeting about:
My twitter handle is @hjalti and I tweet usually about stuff that I find interesting (usually something regarding design, animation, board games or science) or stuff I’m working on as a hobby.

Tell us about your creative side:
My favorite toy as a kid were lego bricks, with them you could just build your own toys and create engineering/deisgn experiments. This need to build things and experiment only grew as I got older. Programming, sculpting, game design, animation, drawing… It pretty much doesn’t matter what the craft is, it’s all fascinating and I love experimenting with it.

What inspires you?
Watching other creative people’s work and passion for their craft.

Time travel: Where would you go to?
Deep into the future to find out what scientists have discovered more about this bizarre universe we find ourselves in.

Name your favorite present book:
‚A Short History of Nearly Everything‘ by Bill Bryson.

Which tweeter would you recommend for @createandrotate and why?
I think @zefrank is the most sincere and creative person I follow on Twitter. His love for making stuff that connects people is very inspirational.
I even participated in one of Ze Frank’s project where you reenact a photograph from your childhood and write a little true story to go along with it:
