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.

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

Anyone know that feeling when you love and trust someone enough to read you to sleep on skype when you're feeling sick but now can't even log in to your own computer because while hugging them in your sleep your arm hit a lot of keys and turned on a disability mode that reads and describes the computer screen to you yelling at you in your sleep for a password until you wake up, sleepy and confused and sweating from fever chills and while half awake you yell at the darn computer before you realize you must appease its hunger for a password so it will shush and you type your password out as you always do... but it won't accept your password so you contact hopeburnsblue with your computer speaking to inform you you hit the 'mute button' (YES I KNOW I DID, IT WAS PRETTY ******* DELIBERATE), contacting her really late in the night after you've tried several things such as restarting and for some reason, the second restart fixes everything, but now you're wide awake.... because I know that feeling. :stare:

I think I just have weird problems.

Thanks everybody for the birthday wishes and even some silly shenanigans, and the cake stolen from the Cakelord herself (neurotype) of course! I'm gonna blend it with some of inknalcohol's secret pie stash and create the best dessert known to mankind. :love:
