HANNES "HANS" BOK (1914 - 1964), a pseudonym for Wayne Woodard, was an American illustrator and writer of fantasy fiction. His style could alternate between, or combine, lush romanticism and humorous grotesquery. His use of time-consuming glazing techniques for his paintings impacted his productivity and limited his output, and therefore his commercial success. Bok won the debut Hugo Award for Best Cover/Professional Artist in 1953.
