From the runways of Milan, to Animated TV
shows, magazine racks, toy stores, book shelves and even the
fragrance isle of your local drug store, Glen Hanson's witty,
stylish and sexy imagery is everywhere!
Over the course of his multifaceted
career, Glen has predominantly divided his time between the two
worlds of illustration and animation.
His illustrations have appeared in a
variety of publications around the world including BRITISH VOGUE
and GQ, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, NEWSWEEK, THE WALL ST. JOURNAL,
MAXIM, VARIETY and D.C. COMICS and on book covers for RANDOM
HOUSE, KENSINGTON, HARLEQUIN, and most recently, the popular
"GODDESS GIRLS" series for SIMON & SCHUSTER.
His roster of advertising clients includes
TIMEX, GRAND MARNIER, McDonald's, and SUNSILK shampoo. His
development illustrations for MATTEL'S "MONSTER HIGH" dolls set
the tone for the brand on packaging, design and the animated
spin off. He has created poster images for the Off-Broadway hit
musical "ALTAR BOYZ", Seth Rudetsky's "SETH'S BIG FAT BROADWAY
SHOW" and the play "MISS ABIGAIL'S GUIDE TO DATING, MATING and
MARRIAGE", on CD covers for House Music Label PURPLE MUSIC and
BLINK 182's "THE MARK, TOM and TRAVIS SHOW" for which Glen was
awarded a certificate of excellence from the AMERICAN INSTITUTE
OF GRAPHIC ARTS.
Throughout North America, Glen's images
adorn gift set boxes and print ads for BOD men's and women's
fragrance products. They have also appeared on the runways of
Milan on a series of t-shirts as part of the spring and fall '05
collections of European men's wear designer, ANDREW MACKENZIE.
Ads designed by Glen for those collections were featured in both
L'UOMO VOGUE and FLAUNT magazines. REV JEANS Italy as well hired
him to create a line of sexy t-shirt images and NYC based
designer KARA ROSS has used his fashion illustrations to promote
her line of high end accessories.
In Animation, Glen started out by
designing characters for TV's BABAR, BEETLEJUICE and DARIA
cartoon shows. In 2000 he was nominated for an ANNIE AWARD for
his art direction and design on MTV's internationally syndicated
SPY GROOVE series. He has since developed shows for NICKELODEON,
FILM ROMAN, STUDIO B, and DISNEY. He co-wrote, designed and
storyboarded a series of animated promo spots for SOAP NET
entitled "CRESCENT HOLLOW" and in 2009 he combined all his
talents to direct, design and storyboard the animated music
video "GHOST TOWN" for UNIVERSAL MUSIC recording artists SHINY
Whatever the medium, Glen brings his
unique talent, passion and enthusiasm to everything he
creates... writing comics and TV shows, conceptualizing visual
merchandise and campaigns for entertainment or corporate
clients, or just capturing the likenesses of the famous and the
fabulous with his signature style.
He looks forward to a future filled with
new challenges, achievements and opportunities!
