John Hancock Bio:

"My name is John S. Hancock, I was born in Waxahachie, TX in the last century. I try to make funny pictures about sad things which satisfies my need to create. I am a professor of fine arts at an undisclosed small university in Central Texas. My solo work has been exhibited nationally and internationally along with my brother and Uncle Chuck. I am also one half of the AMAZING HANCOCK BROTHERS, we have put on exhibitions featuring prints, poetry, gun play, thoughtful mayhem, and minstrel buffoonery. We are the enfant terrible of hybrid printmaking." 

Carlos Hernandez Bio:

"My name is Carlos Hernandez - I grew up in Lubbock. I saw KISS at the Lubbock Coliseum when I was 13. I do A LOT of graphic design and illustration. And I make A LOT of prints. I own a printmaking studio in Houston -BURNING BONES PRESS. Also, I make a very good dirty martini (or so i have been told). 

My work has been exhibited across the USA and around the world. My artwork has also been published in CA Magazine, HOW, Carrier Pigeon NY, and others. I’ve created posters for many bands including Santana, Kings of Leon, The Kills, and even Weird Al Yankovic. I have made corporate grapic work for: Miller Brewing Company, Google, Lincoln Motor Company, Live Nation, New West Records, C3 Presents, Hohner USA, Goode Company, Underbelly, the Houston Chronicle, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, and more. One of my career highlights has been to work with my childhood idol and hot rod legend, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth. 

I'm a graduate of the Texas Tech Design Communication Program."
