Biography

Swiss painter and cartoonist Robert Lips participated in the Art Competitions of the 1936 Berlin and the 1948 London Olympics. He also participated in London as a fencer, finished fifth in team epée and was eliminated in the second round of the individual epée.

At only 19-years-old, as an architecture student, Lips was happy to win a 1931 poster competition from the Globus department store, but he had not dreamed when he developed the comic character “Globi,” that it would later become a best selling Swiss comic. The comic survived him, and many generations of children still enjoy it, with more than 9 million copies having been sold. The first picture stories appeared in 1934 in the Globe Magazine, and they were later continued in the “Globi” picture stories.
