If there is one thing that will ever unite this world of ours, it is pizza.
Dutch artist Leon Karssen wants to share his love for pizza and skateboarding with you. Grip Slices is Leon’s new artistic venture and I asked him about it: here’s what he had to say.
SP: What are Grip Slices? LK: A grip slice is a piece of griptape in the form of a pizza slice (aka triangle) with your favorite kind of pizza drawn on it or a surprise drawing which could be anything that fits on the piece of griptape.
SP: What is the pizza scene like where you’re at? LK: The pizza scene in the Netherlands is fair. There are a lot of Domino’s and NY Pizza places, but not much original Italian pizzerias which is disappointing.
SP: What are your go-to pizza toppings? LK: My go-to toppings are cheese, mushroom,extra cheese, paprika and any kind of meat will do fine.
SP: If you had to pick: thin crust, pan, or deep dish? LK: I think I would go for the classic thin crust. I had to look up what deep dish was and I have never seen that before and I want to try it so bad!
Buy some Grip Slices- For $7,50, Leon will draw you a personal slice of pizza griptape for you to use. Or, order a mystery slice and let Leon surprise you.
you can order other slices too besides pizza slices. slice of life: a grip slice wich has something painted on it that lives or has lived these are 10$ or a surprice slice: a slice which could contain anything from a broom to a pattern to even maybe a cute butt?! whatever bruh. these are 7,50$
this is what it should look like when you order a grip slice: 1 card art, a few post it drawings, a sticker and a gripslice.
