Robert Lange, a caricaturist and political cartoonist, will demonstrate and discuss his art on Thursday, February 12, on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The 7 p.m. program will be held in the SWOSU Conference Center, located at the corner of Seventh and Davis Streets. Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend.

Lange’s visit to SWOSU is sponsored by the SWOSU Libraries Showcase series.

Lange, a native of Oklahoma City, loved drawing even as a small child.  The youngest child of Jim and Helen Lange, he learned a lot about drawing and being a political cartoonist from his father who was a Daily Oklahoman award winning political cartoonist.  Lange’s first love was music, but he decided to get a degree in art during his first year of college.  

He has worked as a political cartoonist, art director, college professor and technical illustrator.  He has been drawing cartoons professionally since 1982 and has been a member of the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists since 1987.  He is the author of John Q: The Life and Times of John Lange which was published in 2013.  Copies of his book will be for sale at the event. 

Lange entertains as a caricature artist for private parties, art festivals, schools, company picnics and various other events.
