In his work, Sherif Adel tackles the concerns, traditions and customs of his country, Egypt, and his drawings beautifully depict the realities of everyday life that words cannot express.

He is affected, like many others, from the chaotic and crowded streets of Egypt, but he has found this a main source of inspiration behind lots of his comedic tales.

Adel publishes an online comic, Barbatoze, where he can interact with the public.

He also draws comics for various newspapers, magazines and websites, as well as publishing his own serialized sci-fi comedy comic, both online and in print, called "Fouat Alayna Bukra," (Pass By Tomorrow.)
