Welcome!

Hello cats. My name is Brent "Meowza" Kobayashi.
I'm a game artist and takoyaki lover from Vancouver, Canada.

Some of the neato things I got to make:
Alphabear, Bushido Bear, Road Not Taken, Glitch.
And a few neato things I am currently working on:
Mineko's Night Market, Loot Rascals,
Steambirds Alliance, PettingPets,
And some other secret projects I can't mention or else
they wouldn't be secrets anymore.

I'm currently the artist for Spry Fox.
I was the art director of Glitch.
Oh yeah! I also drew Slackbot.
I also drew at least two other things.

I also make stuff with my gooder half, Kukubee.

Thank you for peeping your peepers at some of my work.
Let's be best friends on Twitter.
Love you, friend.

- Brent K

About

Brent Kobayashi is an artist from Van... what am I doing. Obviously I'm writing this for myself.

I am a game artist by day, and at night I am a game artist still.

I want to be a takoyaki chef some day. And listen to business people complain about their jobs while I make them takoyaki.

Until then, I will make games and art for games.

I wrote more stuff in that section at the top. So this section is sort of useless.
