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.

Lange 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.

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