Narrative about Zombierella as a character in an exhibition with help by international artists


Several times people tell me that a circle begins anywhere in this life like oroboros myth where a snake eats its own tail ad eternum.
 Based on my experience about what life is,  I know that stories are the most important thing in this universe and if they've images to frame them in our minds, their meaning is really powerful.
 Working in a project with my friend and excellent artist/musician/character Svetlana Zombierella Nagaeva makes me wonder about things while writing some words regarding this project/exhibition with help by several international artists such as:
- Is Svetlana a pretty woman? 
- Is Zombierella an excellent character?
- Is this woman a 21st century one?
- Is she an excellent artist and musician?
All these questions above about her have a simple answer:
- Svetlana's all that and more.
 I've been thinking that a project such as this one is real different from my past or present projects since she isn't a paper woman or a graphic artist/storyteller like some projects that I've organized before for American publishing company Fantagraphics books based on books by recognized Italian and Argentine maestros Guido Crepax, Alberto Breccia or any other book publishing company that I work with and with help by several international artists that I've worked or will work with in the upcoming future (and that are mentioned in previous posts in this same blogue) with exhibitions with their awesome artworks all over the world.
 She's a woman that simply enjoys arts, music and that has a gentle soul that someone tried to rip appart.
 So, I've gathered for this sort of narrative some key elements in pictures with artworks based on her by international artists to provide some sort of info in order to try to erase evil spirits and without any kind of vendetta because we as human living beings only have one life to live.



Printed artworks of masterpiece "V for vendetta" as a symbol for freedom created by British artists Alan Moore and David Lloyd along a woman with a dress based on Portuguese tiles as inspiration and Zombierella character

We've no need for a vendetta in this life that we've, we only need to simply put our heart and soul into our job (this can be seen in the picture above with some symbolism).


Movie posters "Leon, the professional" directed by Luc Besson, "Eyes wide such" by Stanley Kubrick and paperwomen drawn by Argentine Artist Mr Ed, French Artist Walter Minus, Spanish Artists Santiago Sequeiros, Eduardo Alvarado Sanchez Cortez and an unpublished comic strip written by me and drawn by Argentine Artist Mr Ed, Spanish Artists Fidel Martinez Nadal, Pedro Espinosa and Polish Artist Magdalena Minko

Svetlana isn't a paper woman like others that I've worked and will continue to work in my future professional life that are named Valentina or Belinda.

Printed artworks based on Corto Maltese comic book character by Spanish Artist Ruben Pellejero and Russian Musician/Character Zombierella in Porto drawn by Ruben also,



Svetlana isn't a comic book character like Hugo Pratt's Corto Maltese that is shown in the above picture drawn by my friend and Spanish maestro Ruben Pellejero,

 Scattered paper women drawn by Argentine Artist Mr Ed, French Artist Walter Minus, Spanish Artists Santiago Sequeiros, Eduardo Alvarado Sanchez Cortez and an unpublished comic strip written by me and drawn by Argentine Artist Mr Ed, Spanish Artists Fidel Martinez Nadal, Pedro Espinosa and Polish Artist Magdalena Minko



Svetlana isn't also a scattered paper woman randomly served in a common table like Valentina created by Italian maestro Guido Crepax is.

I'm not a character created in some motion picture also (like can be seen in the picture above), I continue being the exact same guy that always was in this life with love for my family, pets and friends



Printed personalized drawing by British Artist David Lloyd based on Hellblazer comic book character created by British artist Alan Moore, a picture of myself and my youngest niece Leticia and an artwork by Argentine Artist Mr Ed based on a kitten that I've used to have.


We as human beings always have and will have our own inner ghost to live with like Hellblazer comic book character has.

Printed artworks of Zombierella character by Russian artist Sasha Larenkov and Spanish maestro Ruben Pellejero


- Is Svetlana's a superhero like she was drawn by Russian artist Sasha Larenkov?

I don't think so.


Printed artworks of Zombierella character by Mexican artist Gaston Ortiz and Italian maestro Stefano Zattera

- Is Svetlana a common woman?
This isn't my opinion of her now.


Printed artworks of Zombierella character by Argentine artist Martin Arrizabalaga and Spanish maestro Jon Ander Azaola

- Was Svetlana in Porto?
I'm pretty sure that she was.
Is Zombierella in Porto and Saint Petersburg?
I'm also sure that she is.


Printed artwork of Zombierella character by Spanish maestro Ruben Pellejero, a picture of a lantern used in the North of Finland by Finnish Artist Terhi Ekebom and a woman dressed with a dress with Portuguese tiles as inspiration.


- Does Svetlana has a heteronym that is lost in Finland?
- Does she wears dresses based on Portuguese tiles design?
I don't have an answer for these two questions.

- Is she like a common volcano that melts into water?
I also don't have an answer regarding this.



Printed artworks of "V for vendetta" masterpiece by British artists Alan Moore and David Lloyd as a symbol for freedom along a picture of myself wearing a personalized t-shirt by British Artist David Lloyd with "V and Evey" in it.



- Does she believes in utopias?
I'm sure that she doesn't because she was born in the same city where Russian writer Dostoievski wrote "Notes from the underground" among several masterpieces also lived.

Printed artwork of Zombierella character by Spanish artist Ivan del Rio and a picture of a random guy lost in the prettiest city in the world.

- Is she lost while communicating in social networks?
I'm sure that she isn't.





Printed artworks of Zombierella character by Jordanian artist Mike V. Derderian and Japanese artist John Kurokawa


- Does she loves gothic and devilish art while killing some sort of vampires and ghoulish things?
I'm sure that she loves this.

Printed artwork by Argentine artist Santiago Caruso, a picture of a random guy and a magnificent book edition of "1984" masterpiece by British writer George Orwell



- Does she believes or seeks power, money, fame or in words?
I don't think so, since she is a humble woman.

Below, I'm posting vídeo links :
One by Tom Waits with its lyrics and a superb animation and another one with one of the best scenes in movies ever.
 Many  thanks to all international artists who believe in some of my ideas in direct communication while trying to make some sort of movement with a static art form in some key places where I physically am exhibiting artworks from several international artists in public during hours for hundreds of people live in coffeeshops where I work at in some of my ideas or projects.
 Special thanks to my friend Svetlana Zombierella Nagaeva that is a simple woman with a gentle soul.
 Stay tuned for more info regarding this project that Svetlana and me are developping with help by the best international artists ever.

Tom Waits - Long way home





Two, One two three four

Well I stumbled in the darkness
I'm lost and alone
Though I said I'd go before us
And show the way back home
Is there a light up ahead?
I can't hold on very long
Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home

Money's just something you throw
Off the back of a train
Got a handful of lightening
A hatful of rain
And I know that I said
I'd never do it again
And I love you pretty baby but I always take the long way home

I put food on the table
And a roof overhead
But I'd trade it all tomorrow
For the highway instead
Watch your back, keep your eyes shut tight
Your loves the only thing I've ever known.
One thing for sure pretty baby I always take the long way home

You know I love you baby
More than the whole wide world
You are my woman
I know you are my pearl
Let's go out past the party lights
We can finally be alone
Come with me and we can take the long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home
Come with me, together we can take the long way home

Cult leader: Please come forward. 
May I've the password, please?
Main character: Fidelio
Cult leader: That's  right. 
That's the password for the list. 
But may I ask you what's the password for the house?
Main character: The password for the house?
Cult leader: Yes.
Main character: I'm sorry. I seem to forgot it.
Cult leader: That's unfortunate because here it doesn't matter if you have forgotten it or if you never knew it. 
 You'll kindly remove your mask.
