Ko Takeuchi Is The Master Of Nerd Culture Doodles

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.

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

Takeuchi obviously has a great sense of humour 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...
