The many bio-blurbs of Dan Hanna:
- Basic Blurb:
Dan Hanna has over 10 years of experience in the animation industry. His work has appeared on BBC America and The Cartoon Network.

- Re-incarnation Blurb:
Dan Hanna was an animator in his previous life. After a stint in limbo, he was re-born as a writer and illustrator of children's picture books. Some aspects of his previous life have miraculously carried over. For example, he still finds it difficult to turn down a serving of lasagna.
- Soul Searching, Dramatic Blurb:
Dan Hanna lives a life of quiet solitude, high in the Bavarian Alps, where he devotes his life to illustrating (and trying to write) picture books. Most of his income is from a modest bee-keeping operation where he produces a thick and tasty Bavarian honey. You can find more information regarding this enigmatic individual at: danhanna.com
- Modest Blurb:
Dan Hanna is currently illustrating (and trying to write) children's picture books. He randomly drops his manuscripts on the ground with the hope that some enterprising editor will stumble upon them. You can find more information about this very modest individual at: danhanna.com
- Whimsical Blurb:
Dan Hanna was born and raised in Southern California and is the 8th of 11 children. Having expanded to his present size over a period of many years he has now begun a process of shrinkage that will no doubt end in a much smaller and more wrinkled version of himself. His life has been most deeply affected by two picture books that he read while very young. He can only recall that one was about whales and the other was about the moon. Unable to achieve his lifelong dream of filling the craters of the moon with oceans and whales, he now tries to fill the minds of children with notions and tales. And so that is where he stands today - sitting at a desk, drawn to drawing, sketching and scribbling thoughts that are nibbling and hoping to catch just a glimpse of a glimmering.
