Sean Hartter Memorial Fund

In the early hours of April 27th, family, friends, and fans of art everywhere suffered a great loss with the untimely death of Sean Hartter. While he was an innovative and prolific artist, Sean was first and foremost a devoted husband to Allison and father of Griffin and Gabriel. He was a valued friend who was always willing to lend an ear when you needed it or make you laugh until it hurt. The notion that a heart so big and generous would stop beating after a short 39 years on this Earth is both shocking and cruel to all who knew him.

Tragically, Sean's death came at a time when his artwork was finally starting to get the recognition it deserved. Any of Sean's nearest and dearest will tell you that he never fully accepted just how gifted he was. His brain bursted with creativity- his artwork included various mediums, from the simple black sharpie and pen to recent adventures creating action figures. He made music, wrote stories, but finally got a taste of recognition from his "Alternate Universe" creations.

The unfairness of losing this talented man at such a young age can not be expressed enough. His death was so unexpected that it was not at all planned for. Sean's friends would like to help his family through this devastating loss in the only way we can- by assisting with the tremendous expense of funeral costs and final arrangements. Because time is so important, please share this link as much as possible. Thank you so much for your help and for the outpouring of love and condolences that have been showered on his family with this enormous loss.

Very sad to hear this. Sean was a brilliant artist. Even though we never met, I interacted with him on this blog, and I could tell he was a cool dude.

My deepest condolences. Sean was a great guy and ever supportive of us at SATURDAY FRIGHT SPECIAL. It was always a blast to see him and the boys at our Spooktaculars, and I was just exchanging excited e-mails with him on Friday about the Hollywood trip.

So, so sad.

Very sad to hear this news. Such a prolific and talented artist with an abundance of great and entertaining ideas.

I've followed Sean's blog since I started following blogs, and having bought one of his shirts just a month or so back was talking to him on Twitter. I recall him saying a year or so back he was ill, but recovering.

I'll really miss seeing his work, and very best wishes you all in this difficult time.

Really saddened to read this.
I never knew your Dad and had only just recently discovered his wonderful artwork through deviantart.
However I'm glad at the very least his legacy will continue, thanks to you.
