The Beast is Back is the work of Christopher Lee. Lee is an Los Angeles-based graphic designer, illustrator, artist and motion designer. He is one of the very fortunate people currently working for the amazing motion graphic giant Buck.
His formal education involved design but he has been drawing since he was old enough to hold a pencil and register cognitive thought. He has exhibited his art, which you can purchase at his online store, around the world in San Francisco, Taiwan, Los Angeles and Chicago.
His site was just relaunched and it is full of great work.
