ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I was born in 1977, managed to survive a childhood in the turbulent eighties, and eventually came out quite well (except for an occasional desire to listen to the Pet Shop Boys).
I've been drawing ever since I remember myself. My first drawings as a young child were of Disney characters, but by the time I reached first grade I professionalized in drawing Smurfs. It was at about the same time that I discovered comics, while bumping into publications of Asterix The Gaul in a local magazine. I immediately fell in love with the funny looking Asterix & Obelix, forever busy with hunting boars and bashing Romans. Today I own almost every Asterix book that was ever published, and I still never get tired of reading them over and over again.
I continued to read comics throughout my childhood and adolescence, adding satirical publications such as Mad Magazine to my list. I also had a few tries in creating comics back then, but it was always drawing "for the drawer".
After a 3 year service in the navy, I went on to studying computer sciences. My passion for software is derived from the same sources that fuel my love for art – the joy of creating something out of nothing.
Today, I work as a software engineer in a large software corporation. I draw My 25 Percent whenever I can find the time, mostly on nights and weekends. I am married, and live with my wife and son in a suburb of Tel Aviv.

Sorry, I don't do commissions for now. It's not that I don't want to. I simply haven't got the time.
