Originally captivated by animation and cartooning, Been was also active in theater, performing arts, and earth sciences, an interdisciplinary foundation that is evident in his work. He worked for several years as a character animator and visual development artist for Cartoon Network, Disney, and other studios. Been has a B.A. in Fine Art from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and took figure painting classes at the California Art Institute.
