Jerri Bullock was a fanzine editor and a artist.
Jerri Bollock was born in Oakland, California in 1928 and was the Art Club President of her high school before attending the College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland.
In 1948 she and co-editor Russ Manning released Fan Artisan. It was the official organ of the group The Fantasy Artisans Club, which both editors, along with Ken Brown, had started.
The Fantasy Artisans Club was a correspondence club for artists and fans interested in fantasy and science fiction artwork. Along with Bullock, Manning and Brown, the club grew to include John E. Blyer, Ken Brown, Lee Budoff, Ed Cox (co-editor of The Chigger Patch of Fandom), Lester Fried, Bill Grant (editor of Canadian Fandom), Joe Gross, John Grossman, W. Leslie Hudson, Roberta Hess, Bill Kroll, Sol Levin, "Loki", Howard Miller (co-editor of Dream Quest), Ray Nelson, William Rotsler, Albert Toth, as well as J. Henk Sprenger of the Netherlands and Ben Abas of Holland and later, Frank Dietz. They exchanged information about drawing techniques, stenciling, as well as offering critiques of each other work, and information about requests from fanzine editors for art. Fan Artisans was the first publication to come from the club.
One issue of Fan Artisan appeared before Russ Manning went back to college and Jerri Bullock decided to incorporate the zine with the photo offset printed Science, Fantasy, and Science Fiction, edited by Frank Dietz, Jr., which became the official organ of The Fantasy Artisans Club in October, 1948. The second issue of Fan Artisan, with Jerri Bullock as sole editor, appeared as a split zine with the third issue of Science, Fantasy, and Science Fiction. The fourth issue of Science, Fantasy and Fiction incorporated Fan Artisan, which then no longer existed as a separate publication.
The Fantasy Artisans Club, in collaboration with Art Rapp's Spacewarp, produced the official publication for the Cincinatti SF convention, called Cinvention Daily.
Throughout the late 1940s and early 1950s, Jerri was contributing covers and art work to fanzines.
