Animator
An ANIMATOR is an artist who creates multiple images, known as frames, which give an illusion of movement called animation when displayed in rapid sequence. Animators can work in a variety of fields including film , television, and video games . Animation is closely related to filmmaking and like filmmaking is extremely labor-intensive, which means that most significant works require the collaboration of several animators. The methods of creating the images or frames for an animation piece depends on the animators' artistic styles and their field. Other artists who contribute to animated cartoons , but who are NOT animators, include layout artists (who design the backgrounds, lighting, and camera angles), storyboard artists (who draw panels of the action from the script), and background artists (who paint the "scenery")

Nikolai Gogol
NIKOLAI VASILIEVICH GOGOL (/ˈɡoʊɡəl, -ɡɔːl/ ; Russian : Никола́й Васи́льевич Го́голь, tr. Nikolay Vasilievich Gogol; IPA: ; 31 March 1809 – 4 March 1852) was a Russian dramatist of Ukrainian origin. Although Gogol was considered by his contemporaries one of the preeminent figures of the natural school of Russian literary realism , later critics have found in his work a fundamentally romantic sensibility, with strains of surrealism and the grotesque ("The Nose ", "Viy ", " The Overcoat ," "Nevsky Prospekt "). His early works, such as Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka , were influenced by his Ukrainian upbringing, Ukrainian culture and folklore . His later writing satirised political corruption in the Russian Empire
