Until recently (about two years ago) I wrote for pleasure, but redundancy forced me into evaluating my career options and I decided that I would like to make the move in to writing professionally. Just over a year ago I started writing a blog; I started by posting some of my own short stories and updates on various other projects that I am working on - my three nascent novels, and a non-fiction booklet about several influential Anglo-Saxon women. Recently I have started reviewing books, albums and concerts. I have always had a keen eye for detail, spelling and grammar, which is useful for me but I never thought anyone else would be interested in my skills. That was until I was asked to edit some short stories for friends. I actually rather enjoy it.

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I got really into the comic book scene around 2010 when I started reading The Walking Dead which eventually became a gateway into the community for me. My writing is not limited to just comic books, but that is my primary focus in regards to my career. I am always working on a few stories at a time, especially because of my interest in a variety of different genres. Right now, I am maintaining my focus on one particular story that I'm really excited about. It is set up as a series of one page mini-stories that will eventually be collected into a graphic novel. I will of course go into detail about the actual story when we speak. I am looking for an artist who is passionate, focused, open-minded, and creative to collaborate with on this. This will not be something that will pay right away, as we will be building it as our product together and marketing it ourselves. I believe that this will be an excellent opportunity to discover our compatibility as a team, and of course if we find that we are compatible, we can move on to greater, much more complex stories! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email at saramakescomics@gmail.com.

For example, the image of the house often reflects the institution of family. The structure of the narrative itself tends to reflect linear time. I explore, however, the breaks in this structure: the images of dark space, fragmented space, dissolutions of form. I show how the modern and postmodern are on the continuum of realism. I look at writings about architecture, such as those of Anthony Vidler, and literary criticism, as well as scientific theories of chaos. The first half of my dissertation explores realism to postmodernism and the second half particular spaces: the labyrinth, the eye, and the seasons, where I discuss the intersection of space and time in poetic language. Each chapter discusses a different author, starting with the modernist Natalia Ginzburg. I explore the prose of Natalia Ginzburg, Christa Wolf, Barbara Neuwirth, and the poetry of Paul Celan, Andrea Zanzotto, and Friederike Mayroeeker.

1953. Nikolay Papp, artist and mystic, is born in the West Ukraine. Admirers will call him a talented visionary; detractors will label him a dissident, whose art and attitudes rail against the repressive norms of the society he has been born into. Astrologers might call attention to the fact that, within their system, Nikolay is a Sagittarian, since he entered the world on December 19th. The fire sign of Sagittarius is the sign of the Archer, symbolized by a centaur with a bow and arrow. It represents the Hunter and the idealist. Curiously enough, Stalin was also a Sagittarian, born December 21st. Fire: an element of both great creativity and destruction, emblematic in spiritual circles for the power of the Will, human and Divine. Nikolay's will was forged by circumstance. Neither or his parents were Party members. His father, an esteemed winecask-maker by profession, was also a violinist of considerable talent. His mother came from a wealthy manufacturing family whose fortunes were destroyed in the Revolution. She remade herself by learning the art of winemaking,becoming a vintner of good repute. She passed on her cultural background to Nikolay, fostering his intellectual and artistic endeavors. She taught him independent thought. He notes, "I always had my opinion," which was unfortunate. The Soviet regime was based on the expression of Party ideology, and any deviation from that was suspect. Nikolay attended a Russian school, where children of Party members were given privilege and priority. "From the time you were small, you heard the propoganda." says Papp. "Not everybody believed it, but everybody had to hear it and deal with it. Speaking out against it meant trouble. But staying within the system was like being in a prison. There was no real communication, no real sense of life." At home, Nikolay's mother taught him drawing, music and poetry. At school, he was taught the Party line. It was a case of expansion versus restriction. A collision was inevitable. Nikolay remembers being beaten on his hands with a ruler by a teacher when he was seven for expressing his opinion. He remembers another teacher who took a particular dislike to him when he was twelve. The teacher came upon him at recess, grabbed hold of the scarf that was around his throat, and dragged him around the playground. No one at the school reprimanded the teacher. Nikolay's mother spoke up on his behalf, but it was to no avail. She was not a Party member. Her son was not a Party member. They had no "legal" recourse. So Nikolay's oppression was tacitly condoned. He continued his education on a somewhat haphazard path. His teachers mostly ignored him. Nikolay, on his own, sketched and wrote poetry. Sometimes he would do drawings for his literature and history classes. When he was 12, he began to write songs. Later in life, the music would provide an occasional source of income, as he would play with bands in local bars and clubs. His mother never ceased to encourage his artistic development, and with a restless intellect and a desire to learn, Papp simply turned from the lackluster offerings of his formal education and went afield looking for mental stimulation. His first one man exhibition was in Moscow when the artist was 33 years old. The socially restrictive and political climate he came out of helped to shape his beliefs and develop his unique style which he expressed as an underground artist. Today, his artwork has become surrealistic in nature, complex and intricate representations of the metaphysical world and self. Mr. Papp believes that through his art he is able to channel a part of a universal spirit. Nikolay Papp has exhibited in Connecticut, New York, Japan, and Russia. His work has been published in U.S art magazines and is in the private collections of the Ukrainian President (an official gift from President Bill Clinton), and actress Kathleen Turner. 1953 - Born in Kosino, West Ukraine 1973 - Entered Red Army, Attended Sergeant's School, St. Petersburg 1976 - Attended Bedzir Studio of Art, Uzhgorod, West Ukraine 1986 - One Man Exhibition, Studio Apartment Show, Moscow 1989 - Group Exhibition, Cultural Center, Vinogradov, West Ukraine 1990 - Emigrated to the United States 1990 - One Man Exhibition, Artexpo, Jacob Javits Center, New York 1990 - Group Exhibition, Artexpo Cal, Los Angeles Convention Center 1991 - Participated in auction to benefit East End Woman's Shelter, East Hampton NY, 1991 - Group Exhibition, Artexpo New York, Jacob Javits Center 1991 - Group Exhibition, International Art Acquisitions, Rochester, N.Y. 1991 - Group Exhibition, ArtJonction International, Nice, France 1991 - Group Exhibition, South Huntington Library,''Three New Talents", South Huntington, NY, curated by Professor Alfred Van Loen 1991 - Group Exhibition, Gallery Stendhal, New York City, "True LQve and Other Stories" 1991 - One Man Show, "The New Surrealists", Gallery Saireido, NY . 1991 - Group Exhibition at the Nassau County Office of Cultural Development "Sacred Spaces", East Norwich, NY 1992 - Works Exhibited at SAGA, Paris, France 1992 - Group Exhibition, ":The New Pop," Palladium Theater, NY 1992 - One Man Exhibition, Gallery SoHo, Corporate Offices of Inter Group Mirita, Corporation.
