comic art by Amitai Sandy

Amitai Sandy started his career in comics when he was eighteen years old, co-publishing the Israeli alternative comix magazine Penguins' Perversions. The magazine ran quarterly for 4 years, and most of Israel's important comix creators contributed to it, enjoying the freedom of expression they rarely get in the establishment and commercial press. Amitai Sandy studied at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, and won an award for outstanding achievements in illustration for his final project. He is a member of the Dimona comix group, which publishes collective anthologies, participates in European comic festivals and is featured in several exhibitions.
