John Gregory Hancock

John Gregory Hancock has been a newspaper graphic designer for several decades. He's lived in so many cities and towns he's lost count.

His visual sense feeds into his writing. Often, his dreams fuel the imagination which is the touchpoint of his tales.

He is but a simple storyteller, in the grand human tradition of old men caught spinning yarns at village campfires. His characters tell him what to say, and he chooses those tales he wants to repeat.

Like many of his characters, life has shaped and unshaped him.

Hancock has worked at a variety of quality newspapers around the country, including the Chicago Tribune, the Philadelphia Daily News, the Los Angeles Times, the Las Vegas Review-Journal and even served as Art Director at the Associate Press in New York City for a time.
He has won nearly two dozen national and international graphic design awards; Society of Newspaper Design (including a gold and 5 silvers), Print magazine, SPJ, Ohio SPJ, Best of Cox and AP of Ohio.
He contributed graphics to the Pultizer-Prize-winning "Military Malpractice" series for the Dayton Daily News in 1998
