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 Packeranatic@gmail.com.

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.

Trivia

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

Interests
My grandfather isn't gone (I believe), but my current situation has reminded me of his mortality— he's 84 after all. While out at my local college escorting my friend to a GED placement, I realized how reliant I am on music to cope, to listen to, to enjoy, and to just be noise sometimes. Often I am listening, humming, singing, or thinking a tune to myself. So I'm going to write a few songs, centered around the town I grew up in and my grandfather and see if anything else comes of it; I have several chord progressions already laid out. For those that don't know, I also dabble with music, it was and is something I seem to pick up naturally and quickly. I've decided to call this project Graves of the Greats, and the first rough draft of an instrumental can be heard below. I plan to come back through and record some chords and bits with my epiphone guitar by the time it is done. I cannot even begin to emphasize enough how much the song changes in the last two minutes; I'm very proud of it, and would like any feedback, here or on soundcloud: soundcloud.com/nichrysalis/cam…





I haven't heard a peep of news about my grandfather today, so as I said, I can only assume he's still here. Thanks to everybody who reached out to comfort, it's appreciated. :heart:
