Joe Bean

I am a designer, Illustrator and urban sketcher based in Leeds in the UK. I’ve worked on projects for many design companies and advertising agencies across the region, as well as direct clients, designing everything from corporate identity, leaflets, posters, brochures and packaging. I’ve also worked on Point of Sale material, Direct Mail campaigns, advertising and even built Dreamweaver, Muse and WordPress websites.

I’ve always loved drawing and this led me to illustration and cartoons. I’ve been funny on ads, leaflets, posters and greeting cards and illustrated projects as diverse as public transport and recycling. In recent years most of my work has been digital using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Discovering the Urban Sketchers community re-ignited the joy of sketching purely as a form of artistic expression, and as their manifesto states I’m ‘showing my world, one drawing at a time’. I am also the co-ordinator for Urban Sketchers Yorkshire and organise ‘sketch crawls’ across the region, where our members can meet and sketch together.
