James Gulliver Hancock feels sick when he’s not drawing. He panics that he may not be able to draw everything in the world… at least once. His obsession with re-imagining his world has seen him work for major print, TV, and music publishing releases, including Coca-Cola, Ford Motors, Herman Miller, Businessweek Magazine, The New York Times, and Simon&Schuster. He has participated in projects in the USA, the UK, Indonesia, Austria, Germany, France, and Australia, taking his whimsical perception around the world. Currently he works out of two studios: one in The Pencil Factory in Brooklyn, New York, and from his homeland studio by the beach in Sydney, Australia.
