Robert “Chance” Browne is a comic strip artist and cartoonist, painter, and musician. The firstborn son of cartoonist Dik Browne (Hagar the Horrible, Hi and Lois), Chance grew up in Connecticut, in a home full of humor, warmth, and lots of art supplies.
He worked as an illustrator, art director, and musician before going to work with his father on Hi and Lois. Chance realized that having such a highly regarded cartoonist for a father was “kind of like being Picasso’s son. Why not study with the best? ... He was my hero.”
After his father’s death in 1989, Chance took over drawing this family comic strip.
Chance also plays guitar and sings with numerous area musicians in a range of genres.
While he makes a living as a cartoonist, he has a true passion for painting, which he does in his spare time.
Browne lives in Connecticut with his wife and three daughters.
