Brett “2D” Bean
Character Designer and Visual Development Artist

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, “much more quiet.” Unbeknownst to his mother and her simple gesture of headache reduction methodology, she spurred on a career of a full-fledged character design and visual development artist.

Since those fateful years, Brett has contributed to Film, TV, games both digital and analog, pitches, manuals, and books. His Client list Includes Disney TV, Nickelodeon, Nerd Corps., Wizards of the Coast, Bento Box, Shadow Machine, The Hub, Space time Studios, Leap Frog, Rumble Inc., Kellog’s, Gazillion Entertainment., Big Idea Entertainment, Imagine FX and More.
When not working for clients he is busy on his first graphic novel called Space Out! and fine tuning his own pitches for the screen.
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.

Personal Quote: Be happy with how far you've come but not satisfied with where you're at.
That's right.  I'll be representing the US in an all star line up for Illustrators Deathmatch in Mexico next weekend!

Illustrators Deathmatch!


I have the honor of being invited and sharing the stage in Queretaro City at Illustrators deathmatch 2014

They have a list of great talent coming:


and then there’s lil ol me amongst these amazing artists.  I am stoked and excited to visit a new venue, meet new friends, see old friends, and do a live demo and speak about art!

If you happen to be in Mexico, stop on by!

I am excited for this one!

Now to brush up on my Spanish and stock up on bottled water….

That moment when you get to someone's dA profile via Oatley's artcasts, and you think: "Well, I'll have to watch that guy.", just to realise you were already watching him.

And don't have the slightest idea when and how that happened.

Man, the world's a village these days, fo' sure.
