Hello! I am Bruno P. Kinoshita or “kinow”, born and raised in Casa Verde, São Paulo, Brazil. A typical Paulistano. I moved to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand, and lived there for 8 years. I currently live with my wife, Cibele, in Barcelona, Spain.

Head on to the blog for posts about languages, writing, music, arts, and computer programming. Or visit my portfolio where I upload drawings, illustrations, and paintings.

Drawing with studies of hands and feet
Studies of hands and feet.

In arts, I enjoy life drawing, editorial illustration, gouache, watercolors, pastels, 3D, UI/UX, data visualization, and writing. Much of the way I draw and paint was imprinted on me by my late big brother, Joe Lauviah Morbitus Mortiferus (he would still want to be called that way, shrugs). I use mixed media, but tend to use more charcoal, graphite, and ink for traditional arts. For digital arts I use GIMP, Krita, Blender, ClipStudio Paint, and Inkscape.

In computer programming, I write code in Java, Python, JavaScript, PHP, and a few other languages. I am interested in natural language processing, languages (like Portuguese, Spanish, French, English, Catalan, Irish, Te Reo Māori, and Japanese), functional programming, linked data, reasoners, fuzzy logic, and all things open source. I have worked on Windows, Unix, Linux, Mainframe, HPC, and cloud. My father, Jorge Yoshio Kinoshita, had a career working with mainframes at IBM.
