Brett Bean

After asking to be a drummer to his mother at an early age, Brett Bean was handed a piece of paper and a pencil because, “It was more quiet,” thus starting his slow descent into the seedy underbelly known as character design and visual development.

Through years of toiling and drawing, the egos, the self-deprecation, and the ability to endure, Brett emerged mostly human and finally employable.

Since those fateful years he’s contributed to Film, TV, games both digital and analog, pitches, manuals, and books.

With a passion for travel, caffeine, volleyball, Tom Waits, and speaking in the a 3rd person vernacular, Brett currently free-lances, teaches, and lives with his wife Julie, a brilliant jewelry designer, in Pasadena, CA.
