Nomadic Bean is a coffee cart business based in the Portland area. They came to me and asked for a bean character, with a knapsack over it's shoulder. Being a cartoonist at heart I gave it arms and legs, eyes and a good sized grin. The client then got it across that they really wanted something more graphic, or stylized. I nailed the design on the second round and then created the vector art. To the right is an animated gif from my first sketch, to the finished vector art.
