Andreas Qassim grew up in Sandsbro, a town near Växjö. He showed an early interest in drawing, but initially focused on a career in music, playing the saxophone in jazz bands. He eventually took the art foundation course from the art school in Liverpool, UK, and attended animation school in Fellingsbro, Sweden. Afterwards, he moved to Malmö where he became one of the artists of 'Bamse' comics, starting in 2001. He also attended the University there, where he majored in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies and graduated in 2007.

Series and books by Andreas Qassim in stock in the Lambiek Webshop:
Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over
12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
