Along with his visual arts background, Butler has maintained ten-year career as an educator, illustrator, and mural painter doing work for clients such as Price Waterhouse Cooper, Ithaca College, Soulo Theory Creative, National Association of Black Accountants, and Miami University Oxford, Ohio. He has illustrated three children’s books, and completed illustrations for multiple editorial publications.
