esprit d'automne
c’est l’automne…
le vent se précipite en bas des rues vides et suscite
un torrent de chuchotements dans son sillage: les feuilles
convoquent les fantômes de l’été
pour rendre hommage au froid; elles sont ivres contre les vitres,
et les vêtements ardents sont un dernier cri de désespéré
avant que les mois monochrome arrivent.
c’est l’automne…
le vent est brutalement froid; il fonce
les feuilles des arbres comme il déchire vers
je regarde la guerre dans les derniers lambeaux de l’été
par la fenêtre, et je suis intacte
mais touchée.
c’est l’automne…
le vent hochet contre les vitres, mais à l’intérieur il y a
le chaud, et le scent des brioches fraiches:
le clou de girofle et la cardomome, la cannelle, la noix de muscade, la vanille,
et surtout la flarine, l’odeur d’une cuisine propre, chaude et brillante,
comme un sanctuaire secret

Wild Feature: The Zodiac
First off, I'd like to start off with an explanation. A good number of people have asked me why I do these. Here's why: DA is a big community with a lot of really good artists and sometimes those artists get overlooked. I want to help get those artists (or at least some of their Deviations) recognized so that their art can be appreciated. It's a pretty good cause...right? Anyway, with that said, I present to you my next feature: The Zodiac

No really, I mean it!  

There have been some major changes in my life recently, not the least of which was a move to northern MT (nearly Canada really!) with my partner :icononegoldenapple:.  I now have a boring regular job, and am settling into the rhythm of this new unique and charming little town.  The really good news in all of this:  more time.  More time for art, for work on our comic, for yoga and for dance.  (I am still working with the performance group I was a part of in Missoula as a satellite member.)  

In sort, you'll be seeing more stuff from me soon, and our comic is actually moving forward.  There may be a a rework of the short preview comic Fionnabhair Goes Too Far, which we have posted a couple of pages from here, for starters.  We'll see!  I'm also hoping I might be able to be active in a couple of forums and clubs here and garner some real feedback on my work and how to get going in this crazy crowded web-comic filled world of online art.



DaturaDesign's Profile Picture
Madeline Keller
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Madeline is a former art student, chibi-doodling, oil and acrylic painting, comic drawing, knitting, belly dancing, burlesquer and aspiring web comic illustrator. Recently she has moved with her partner, pup, and small herd of cats out to the great northern wilderness of Montana. There when she is free from her day job she wanders the woods, drinks lots of tea, and is currently working on reclaiming her previous artistic ferver!

Stay tuned for doodles, character designs, and other such nonsense as she inches closer to the launch of her dream webcomic.

Want to get to know her partner in crime/girlfriend/writer?
