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

Currently working on:
Mineko's Night Market, Meowza Games' first game,
with my gooder half, Kukubee.
The game is being published by Humble Bundle.
Also doing art/animation on Alphabear 2 for Spry Fox.

Some of the neato things I worked on in the past:
Alphabear, Bushido Bear, Road Not Taken, Glitch, Loot Rascals,
Steambirds Alliance, Beartopia.

Oh yeah! I also drew Slackbot.

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

- Brent K

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.
