Chance Browne is a Connecticut-based cartoonist and the son of Dik Browne ('Hagar', 'Hi and Lois'). Also known as Robert or Bob Browne, he attended The School of Visual Arts and Park College. He was an illustrator, art director and musician before joining his father in the creation of 'Hi and Lois' in 1973. The 'Hi and Lois' comic was created in 1954 by Dik Browne and Mort Walker as a spin-off of 'Beetle Bailey'. Chance became the strip's primary artist in the mid 1980s.
Nowadays, the feature is continued by the sons of the two artists. Brian and Greg Walker succeeded their father in writing and Chance Browne replaced his father as the artist on the strip, while his brother Chris Browne took over 'Hagar'. King Features distributes 'Hi and Lois' to about 1100 newspapers worldwide. Browne is additionally active as a painter, freelance graphic designer and jazz and blues musician.
