started in animation in Philadelphia, PA . After marrying Barbara (also an
artist, and musician) and the birth of their daughter Becky, the need for actual
money drove them to New York, and a job as designer, animator and eventually
director with one of the top animation houses in NYC. In 1986, with partner
Nancy Beiman, he opened Caged Beagle Productions, Inc., a full-service animation
studio, and has produced, directed, designed and animated innumerable TV
commercials and CD-ROMs, with clients across the United States and Europe. Dean
was named Animator of the Year by the National Cartoonists Society.
He also does work for corporate clients, designing characters for various products, and works on a continuing series of children's books, designs the occasional toy, and contributes cartoons to Playboy magazine. In other words, he'll do pretty much whatever swims before his startled gaze.
