The world rocks when cartoons meet literature
With his characteristic figures Henrik Lange is one of Sweden's most appreciated cartoonists and illustrators. With the book 90 Classic Books for People in a Hurry, in which old and new classics each are summarized in four-panel comics, Henrik Lange created a completely new genre, the 'hurry-novels'. People in a hurry can quickly cover literary classics as well as the great films and TV-series.
After drawing- and design education, like comic strip drawing school, animated film at KonstFack (Swedish University College of Arts, Crafts and Design), web design and marketing, Henrik Lange has established himself as a freelance illustrator and cartoonist. His illustrations can be seen in the large newspapers as well as in a number of smaller magazines and web sites. He has published a number of comic strip albums and participated in the Nordic anthology Anything for the Art (Allt för konsten). Henrik Lange has also written and illustrated his own children's books, for instance The Candy Trap (Godisfällan) and also illustrated books for authors like Sören Olsson and Anders Jacobsson and for Nicolas Jacquemot.
Henrik Lange's seemingly simple comic strips are in reality always strips with a double meaning and his ability to catch both large contexts and small details is characteristic for his style. Henrik Lange has been rewarded with a number of awards and scholarships from Sveriges Författarfond (The Swedish Authors' Fund) and Tecknarnas fotokopieringsfond (Illustrators and Graphic Designers).
