Welcome to AriArk. My name is Arifur Rahman, and I am the creator of the AriArk. AriArk is a comics series and graphics novels book project.
All the stories of AriArk are written by me (Arifur Rahman), and the drawing is drowned by me as well.
AriArk is a fictional planet that is far away from our galaxy in my fantasy. And I have tried to visualize the stories from the times and civilizations of the AriArk.
About the name of AriArk:
The first three letters Ari comes from my first name Arif or Arifur, and the Ark I pick from the Norwegian word Ark which means a square piece of paper, but I have found it has some other meanings in English, from the religious perspective Ark mean (in the Bible) the ship built by Noah to save his family and two of every kind of animal from the Flood; Noah’s ark, from Nautical perspective a ship or boat, from Invertebrate perspective a small bivalve mollusc which attaches itself to rocks with byssus threads, from the Farming perspective a low hut used to house livestock, often incorporating a covered run.
The project is bilingual in Norwegian and English.
I think Fiction or fantasy doesn’t exist without the foundation of reality.
Some stories are based on my experiences, thoughts, and opinions.
Some stories are inspired by true events, some of them are metaphoric replacements of historical sequences or literary sources, artworks that I have read or listened to, or watched during my lifetimes.
If you have an idea that you want to share with me, so please drop me a message via the contact page.
I always love to listen to you.
