Børge Lund (NO) is the artist behind the comic strip Lunch. He holds his education from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, and worked for several years as an industrial designer.
In 2007 Lund sent a comic drawing to a series competition held by the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet. He did not win, but continued to work with his new series, named Lunch.
After two periods as a guest comic writer in Dagbladet, he got Lunch published regularly at Teknisk Ukeblad in 2008. The following year Lunch got its foothold in Pondus comic magazine and appeared regularly in Dagbladet.
In 2010 Lund received the Pondus award of NOK 100,000 for Lunch, and in December the same year he entered into a partnership with Strand Comics. His first published Lunch-album, called “K-O-M-I-N-U-K-I-S-J-O-N” (Comminucition) vas launched by Egmont in 2011.
The first edition became immensely popular and sold out in a short time. By 2013 Lunch was published as a magazine of it´s own, with release every six weeks.
It was the biggest new comic commitment in Norway since Pondus and Nemi in 2000 and 2002, with a launch circulation of 60,000.
Today Lunch is published in 90 newspapers and magazines in Norway and abroad, including Dagbladet, Dagens Næringsliv, Adresseavisen, Bergens Tidende, Stavanger Aftenblad, Sydöstran (Sweden), Ekstra Bladet (Denmark), Iltalehti (Finland), Publimetro (Mexico), La Nacion (Costa Rica), El diario expresso (Ecuador) and El informe de David (Panama).
Børge Lund now draws series fulltime. In 2014 he published the first major chronological Lunch-book called “Sykt travelt” (Insanely busy), which went straight into the bestseller lists.
Late 2015 came “Ikke snakk mens jeg forstyrrer” (Do not work while I’m interrupting). Lunch was also published in a small book called “En liten bok om gode kolleger” (A small book about good colleagues).
