IFS Featured Artist- May 2022

Happy First Saturday weekend Agents! Doesn’t it seem like this year is just flying by? This months IFS Media Artwork is a first! We have a wonderful video to send you all. This months artist is Tenmaso, from Tokyo Japan!


Agent Name






How long have you been playing?

Since summer 2014

What inspired you to submit your piece to the contest?

I made a video of pancake art at the Ingress Toast Festival before, but it was difficult to bake pancakes beautifully, so I decided to try again.

Also, since it is possible to apply for videos, I felt that the short videos uploaded from last year are suitable.

Is there anything about your media you want people to know?

I’ve been wondering if I could distribute something through Ingress for several years, and from around last year I started distributing videos little by little with tiktok.

Instead of distributing how to play, we incorporate information about the city into portal scans, anomaly events, and second Sundays. I still upload it every month, and I hope that people who don’t know Ingress will be interested in it.

Is there a website where people can see your media?

The video is distributed on tiktok and introduced on Twitter.

Are there any details you would like to share about your craft?

I don’t have much knowledge yet, so I need to study, but I make everything with one smartphone.

Do you plan to make swag from the thumbnail image?

I have no plans to create one at the moment.

Is it ok if agents use the thumbnail image in their Virtual IFS Group photos?

No problem. Please use it!


I don’t know about you guys, but i am certainly hungry now! Who doesn’t want some First Saturday pancakes? Thank you for submitting this delicious piece and doing our interview! Agents, if you would like to get the media for this artwork join an IFS event this weekend and help decode your puzzle! Thank you to Tabineco, who made some templates here for IFS groups to use in Group Photo collages!

Here is the Mission Set !


Please be mindful not to use this artwork(s) used in this post without permission of the artist outside of group photos for IFS. Thank you and we hope you participate in future IFS art competitions!
