Owen Paints Owen

So when I’m not earning master’s degrees—i.e. just one master’s degree—or helping the next generation write their papers, I’m still occasionally making art (after a little prodding and promises of remuneration, of course).

𝗦𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘆 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲: I got an email out of the blue by a man saying he’d been googling his brother, a famous comedian in the Netherlands, and links to my art also came up. “How so?” you might ask. Easy: His brother and I share the same name. (And what a name it is.) 𝗢𝘄𝗲𝗻’𝘀 𝗯𝗿𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗵𝗮𝗱 𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗮: 𝗢𝘄𝗲𝗻 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘁 𝗢𝘄𝗲𝗻 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝘂𝗺𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿. 🎨 Now you behold the comic results, and Owen’s brother has gotten his strange wish.

The world’s a funny place, Groucho glasses and all. 😂 Greetings from sunny California to 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 Owen Schumacher of the Netherlands. Cheers.
