You may not know his name, but chances are you’ve seen some of Ko Takeuchi’s art. Best known for his simple designs and bold lines, Takeuchi has helped shape the look of both the WarioWare and Rhythm Heaven series. He also draws a lot of nerdy icons, memes, and adorable characters in his spare time.


Since Takeuchi works in the gaming world he enjoys putting his own cutesy spin on classic characters.

Ness of EarthBound
Doshin the Giant
Papyrus of Undertale
Shante the Half Genie Hero
D.Va of Overwatch (She plays to win)

Not only does Takeuchi following gaming, he’s also a fan of those who make their living talking about and playing games.

And of course some of Japan’s most famous anime movies and shows make an appearance.

How about some movies and TV shows? I need a Seinfeld anime in my life...

Though Takeuchi is in his mid-40's he still keeps up with the dankest memes on the net.

“This is Fine” mech style
Nyan Cat

Takeuchi obviously has a great sense of humor and a wonderful knack for tackling just about any game, show, movie, character or meme. It’s hard to know what he’ll draw next (Oh! Oh! Pick me!), but in the end every one of his wonderful little doodles is just...
