A little info about Christopher Lee:

Christopher Lee is a multi-disciplinary designer and illustrator of sorts who works under the moniker The Beast is Back. He is a Sacramento native and is a graduate from Sacramento State University and has a degree in graphic design. His entire life has revolved around drawing since he was old enough to hold a pencil.

Speaking of pencils...

The way he holds his pencil has often been referred to as “the claw”.

His favorite quote comes from Picasso as he states "Art washes away `sums up his personal philosophy.

In July of 2006, he moved to Southern California in search of new inspiration and surroundings. Since then he worked as an Art Director for the Sacramento grown street and skate culture magazine Vapors and from there switched gears and was recruited to the motion graphics studio, Buck, where he also worked as an Art Director.

In October of 2009, he said goodbye to Buck and decided to go rogue. He currently resides in Burbank and works as a full-time freelance illustrator for a variety of clientele including Target, Hasbro, Nike, Absolut, and Adobe.

In addition to his freelance work, he and his girlfriend continue to work on their growing greeting card and home decor brand The Birds & The Beasts.
