James Gulliver Hancock is an artist trained in Visual Communications in Sydney, Australia who’s work (as his namesake) has traveled the whole world over. He was involved in artist projects and residencies in Indonesia, Austria, France, the U.K. and America and is currently located in Los Angeles — working on projects in Europe, America and Australia.

Part on his illustrations for Readers Digest Australia for stories on pets doing extraordinary things.

From his website:

His work is conceptually driven and is concerned with confusions of perception and embraces personal subjectivity. Born to psychologist parents he draws from an analysis of hyperchondria, obsession, and hyper-awareness. Throughout this investigation his work maintains a consistent charm, whimsy and poetic graphic sensibility.
