Background about John Hambrock

John Hambrock, the creator of The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee, was born and grew up in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. As a boy, he displayed a unique talent for art, receiving numerous awards for his artistic achievements. In high school, he was voted the most artistic male in his senior class. John continued his education at Indiana University, and later, Ringling School of art and design in Sarasota, Florida, graduating with a degree in Graphic Design. He won his first major marketing award while still in college, taking first place in the Philip Morris National Marketing Competition for college students. This prestigious award was presented to him and 4 other student members of his creative team at the Philip Morris headquarters in NYC.

In 1985, within months of completing college, John was recruited by James Courtenay James, Inc., a small design agency in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Loving the south, but longing for the big city, he moved to Chicago in 1986 and landed a position with the Hirsch Design Group, a well-established Loop advertising and design agency. That same year, he married Anne, a woman he’d known since high school. Years later Anne would become a driving force in helping him achieve success in his newly emerging cartooning career. After almost 10 years as an art director with Hirsch, he decided the time was right to start his own agency, In-House Communications. Specializing in industrial advertising, packaging and print design, his client list has grown to include major industrial and retail manufacturers, as well as one of the country’s leading law firms.

When not cartooning, John loves sailing Lake Michigan and spending time with his wife and three children.
