Leon Karssen is a 20-year-old illustrator (or as he would say, a guy who just draws shit) from The Hague, Netherlands, who nowadays lives in Amsterdam. He’s most famous for drawing cats (and dicks and butts, but mostly blue cats) with MS Paint or the animated 8-bit gifs he did of your favorite pros. Remember? Sure you do. It was on Jenkem. There are kids out there that let themselves tattoo his drawings because they are so hyped, which already qualiﬁes him for the Gonz, Templeton, Jim Philips league. Quite good at this age. That’s why we wanted to know more about Leon and asked him some questions. He drew the answers. Xoxo
