His name is Brett Bean and he likes long walks on the beach as well as drawing!

Neddy had a thoroughly enjoyable chat with the always jovial Brett Bean about his unconventional career journey, how he worked with 3dtotal to create Draw! into the kind of book, he would have wanted as an artist just starting out, and some advice for life as much as art - take only what you need.
