We couldn’t be happier to have MS Paint maestro $unny Katz illustrate our September VAMP poster: The Games We Play. Yep, you heard us: MS Paint.
A little about yourself:
My name is $unny Katz, I am 27 years of age and I really hate writing bios. My interests include, but are not limited to, anime, video games, babes, babes that buy me things, and glitter. My non interests include, but are definitely not limited to, fuckery, people that grab at my tattoos, dry skin, loud chewing, and close talkers. I prefer to lurk in the shadows and under the cover of night. This is because the day star is hot and burns my delicate skin. The irony that I am named after the object I try to avoid is not lost on me. I have a lot of cats and I am always ready to swap cat tails. (LOL, GET IT????)
What’s your fascination/history with MS Paint?
I started playing around with MS paint around ten years ago. I don’t remember what I drew, but I am guessing it was probably something with bunnies and dicks. In my twenties I started using it at a more frequent and consistent rate. I really liked how it made whatever I was drawing a little bit shitty. I myself being a little bit shitty immediately identified with that property. Most of my drawings are things that I have done for my own enjoyment and for the horror everyone else. Which in turn brings me yet more enjoyment.
What’s the best thing you’ve ever painted?
Hands down MS painting my father as a Jewish rapper was the greatest achievement of my artistic career.
What kind of inspiration did you use for “The Games We Play”?
THE BLOOD OF NEWBORN CHILDREN. Oh, sorry! Wrong questionnaire. I pulled inspiration only from my own gaming background. I thought about trying to incorporate other games that might interest people outside of my own person, but then I realized how much I didn’t want to do that.
Signed, limited edition prints of $unny’s poster will be for sale at this month’s VAMP on September 29. Also, check out her blog and let her know she does amazing work.
