Inspired By: Zinaida Serebriakova

     Russian painter, Zinaida Serebriakova (1884-1967), is one of my favorite artists. Her self portrait is INCREDIBLE. She painted that! Of herself! In 1909! Her portraits are all amazing and her landscapes are lovely too. Eva Bacas ’16 || Managing Editor

Rogan Brown Paper Sculpture

Rogan Brown Paper Sculpture

    I recently came across the paper sculpture work of Rogan Brown on The Jealous Curator (one of my favorite art sites). One of the biggest sources of inspiration in my personal artwork is my fascination with biology and plants, so I had a particular interest […]

WIP

WIP

Work in progress, WIP, is an ongoing series of the poetry, artwork, and writing Sequel staff members have been working on. I was drawing different ways to create my fire character for my up and coming long term comic for the class. Also, the two […]

Inspiration Roundup

Inspiration Roundup

A roundup of whatever has been catching the eye of the Sequel staff this week. *** “I want to write a novel about silence. The things people don’t say.” ~Virginia Woolf     I feel like this quote is pretty inspiring for any writer. Dialogue is really […]

The Process of Imagination

The Process of Imagination

    My first intentions were to draw a transformation from an old man to a monster, but, as the process went on, I found myself turning towards an orc rather than a monster. Sam Slafkosky ’16 || Art Staff

Cain

Cain

This is something I wrote in like 9th grade(?), but I really liked it and reading Frankenstein made me remember it. In this little monologue, Cain, who’s normally perceived as the bad guy, criticizes Abel in a way that I believe makes sense and is […]

XTC

XTC

    As you may remember from my previous post (if you missed it, check it out here), I’m kind of an 80’s freak. Not just any 80’s freak – oh, no – I listen to the bands that no one remembers, or really knew about to […]

African American Hairstyle Spotlight: Solange Knowles

African American Hairstyle Spotlight: Solange Knowles

    Now it’s time to shed the spotlight on one of the lesser known Knowles sisters. The one and only Solange Knowles. Solange prides herself on wearing hairstyles that incorporate her natural hair texture, and I applaud her; that isn’t an easy thing to do. Without […]

“I Want it on Vinyl”

“I Want it on Vinyl”

    I got a record player as an early birthday present. I currently have one record – Sufjan Stevens’ Age of Adz– and I’m really excited to grow my collection. Records are just another level of commitment to music, I feel, because of the cost, but […]

Wawa Review

Wawa Review

    This might be the most exciting post all year – that’s right, the stars have aligned. This is a collaboration between Sequel and, you guessed it, the Dulaney Griffin. Hannah Bauer, one of our own, was asked to review Wawa for the Griffin, which she […]

When The Gramophone Rings

When The Gramophone Rings

    Although you’ve probably never heard of it, When The Gramophone Rings is the most honest, dedicated-to-the-music music publication I’ve seen probably ever. While Rolling Stone may be the most well-known and respected, it has lost its original purpose – to inform readers about musicians and […]
