He started doing comics in the mid-1990s. His first published comic was 'Esther & Els' in Santé magazine, which ran for about three years from 1996. Then for newspaper Trouw, he made the weekly feature 'De Vooruitgang', an illustrated history of the 20th century.
In 2001, for the same newspaper, Geenen created 'Het Dagboek van Anton Dingeman', a comic about the everyday life of an office clerk, in which Geenen comments on Dutch society. Both 'De Vooruitgang' and 'Anton Dingeman' have been collected in books by De Harmonie. Geenen also has a weekly section in Vrij Nederland.
