My Bio

My name is Sean Butler. Much of my life has been dedicated to the pursuit of becoming a filmmaker and artist. I am a young man with Aspergers Syndrome. I'm always kind and considerate and I don't disobey my parents or teachers. But when I grow up and become a director I want to be just like Guillermo del Toro and Tim Burton. Most of my artwork is inspired by the works of Tim Burton and Guillermo del Toro. I am also inspired by anime's such as Elfen Lied, Soul Eater, or anything from Studio Trigger. I also have an interest in stories that are either historical or fantastical. I like to draw fantasy creatures both friendly and not so friendly. I personally believe that monsters and faeries are more than just childhood fantasies. So for whatever its worth I hope you like my art. And remember "Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe."

Favorite genre of music: Any kind.

Favorite songs: Toumei na Tsubasa (透明な翼 Transparent Wings), Ninelie, Simple and Clean, Sanctuary, Dúlamán, You Where There, Tha Mo Ghaol Air Àird A 'Chuain, You're Beautiful by James Blunt, Upside Down by Jack Johnson, Hero by Nickelback, Gake no Ue no Ponyo, No Weapon by Fred Hammond, I See Fire by Ed Sheeran, Don't Think Twice, When You Believe.
