Remarkable Reads

These are fine examples of what literature is crafted to be. Take heed and take notice of their nuances and anatomy, for they are thunderbolts among this word-drenched thunderstorm.

The best cure for swollen feet (after working on your feet all day)?

Artist's Statement 10/25/2011

Nic Swaner is a studying graphic designer, and a budding young writer whose concepts and syntax require a rush of blood and breath to the lungs. For inspiration he need not look far from the cyclopean sun, feel the displacement before the epilepsy, synthesize some synesthesia, or recall the origami folds his hands have memorized throughout the years.

Nic is almost entirely self-taught in the ways of writing and in doing so has created a style all his own. His medium is mainly through poetry, short stories and articles for websites; he excels in portraying his thoughts and ideas in a world of complex and harmonious verbiage. He is always whittling away at several works of writing that will be submitted to free publishers or magazines. Nic will always be happy to edit and critique your writing, whether it's poetry or prose. Contact him at

Nic is currently studying graphic design and the fundamentals of art. He has always emphasized the power of concept over complexity, and have maximized color and composition to their utmost potential. He prefers to work with photomanipulations and typography to portray his concepts. He is always open to critique from his peers. Other artistic endeavors from Nic include folding origami, film photography, darkroom artwork such as photograms, and music production.


Nic lives in Chicago, Illinois, but his hometown is Robinson, Illinois. He likes Progressive Rock and Underground Rap music. Marcus J. Ranum is his most adored photographer. Samurai Jack is his favorite cartoon character along with Ed, Edd, and Eddy. His favorite ice cream flavor is French Vanilla. He has a mild form of sound to color synesthesia for melodies and believes the song Echoes by Pink Floyd is green.

"The world is only as old as the person to whom you speak." - Nic Swaner

This is a complex essay on the analysissies of tens of years of research on the sciences of human nature, biology and Great Expectations. Instant gratification was studied as well, but we got bored. The following graph is complexically lexically complex if you're complexless go get complex so you see and appreciate the raw complexifulness of this uncooked data. Or maybe it's a pretty picture by Leesdg that is awesome and thought a lot of my dA peeps would enjoy (especially the GoT-watching ones). :giggle:

Elevation. Ice on for 20 minutes, off for 20. Drink lots of water.

That's what I'm doing. Had to take a day off and just focus on fixing any pains.

Hmm, odd, I must have posted that comment on your profile instead of the poll. My screenreader's been a little evil lately ... glad it's getting better.
