About Kristof Devos

My career took off in kindergarten, where my teacher held one of my drawings in front of the classroom and told the other children to laugh.

Since then, it seems like it was mere revenge that drove me to become an illustrator and author. Although, I must admit, there’s also quite some passion involved.

He works barefoot wearing a winter hat. It looks ridiculous, but keeps it his head together.
