Although Amr Selim’s education and career began in film and animation, his interest in cartooning eventually led him to teach himself cartooning and to enter into the profession. Since the beginning of his career in 1988, Selim has worked for several publications including, Rose El-Youssef, Al-Nasiri, Al-Dostour, and more. Now, Amr Selim’s cartoons appear daily in the Al-Masry Al-Yom newspaper.
