unlearn the constellations
I may carry my voice
on white-crested wingtips
but I refuse to take the names of birds.
My throat is not a desert
with smoldered star limbs
in place of sand, not a stone
for you to overturn and mark
with gentle cloud prints
or leave in the mud
to be perforated by bright moss.
My song is not made
to be thundered like a body
on the wind, to be bellowed
by the jagged mouths
of some distant, forgotten jungle.
It is made to slide along the edges
of twenty burning suns and rise
like a halo of newfound breath
from the crevice which splits
earth and sea. To break open
like the young, wet-winged dove
born of a glorious mud
which cracks mountains with its beak.
My song is this:
your mouth pressed against my heart
and my heart unfurling like a fist,
like a tree which tries to speak
but finds itself without a tongue. It is
a sky for you to stand in. A cold, unknown
world which opens its mouth in peals of
thunder and cries teach me,
teach me how to sing

as if I were some heavy-handed god

The Monster of Orange Joyling
The children had never seen a monster before.
They'd heard the stories, of course. It was impossible to live in the City of Always Nightfall without having huge, cavernous dreams about the bone-pile it digs its roots into. It was a very big and bloody bone-pile, the one crunching underneath Singing City.
There was Glum Rradung, the bulge-eyed sewer-midget who slithered out of water-closets and gulped down children wandering about in the dark. There was Ingalin, the hungrymind which spontaneously formed out of clutter and garbage. There was the Very Practical Man, whose face was just an enormous nose and an even bigger grin, a demon who, they say, could smell out loneliness and loved to torment the heartbroken and the near-suicides.
And there was the Dark Lord in his pyramid, high up in the inner city where no Squatschild could ever go. The climbing, black stain of Tower Myth and Mastery was a brooding reminder that it was a monster who ruled them all.
Singing City's slum-brats had no l

Hello my lovelies!!!

So it's time for the yearly journal update! I mean wow, a whole journal entry a year! I'm so generous and giving and... Yeeeeah sorry about that |D

I realized I'd left things on a... Less than optimistic note, and you know what? Things ARE optimistic right now. Lets make my profile represent that!

First of all, I wanna mention ONE reason for my relative silence has been a change of venue... I have actually been arting quite a bit! It's all over on my art Tumblr, TheStudyofMonsters
I AM going to start trying to post more stuff over here, but the vast bulk of my work is probably gonna be on Tumblr first, so if you've been missing the glorious disasterous combo of lines and color we deem art made by Me, you should go look there! Go! Open that second tab! You know you waaaant tooooo~

ASIDE from that, there've been some other major life changes going down that've distracted me a lot from posting on DA.

Here's what's been up:

-Healed up a severally broken limb. Then promptly got Tendontis in the same arm!
-RECOVERED from Tendonitis (THANK GOD)
-Dealt with some stuff relating to Depression and Anxiety disorders. They aren't gone, but they're now under my management, and I'm Okay.
-Graduated from RISD!!!?? Am I an adult now? Wait what? When did that happen!?
-Day job begin
-Freelance Arting begin
-Trying to also balance making personal short comics as well BEGIN.

So right now I'm still in an adjustment period. But I've been getting to work with some awesome people, my day job is really accommodating of the fact that I need to schedule around my freelancing, I have two lovely fluffy cats, and many wonderful friends new and old alike.

What to expect from me anytime in the near future:
-Monster designs. I did a ton of bizarro creatures just for the sake of making bizarro creatures, and they'll be what I mostly post, because I can make them quick and casually and have fun stretching creative muscles without it conflicting with my professional worktime needs.
-Short comics!
    I've decided, before jumping into trying to make another longer form webcomic and having it not work out, I'm going to try a different approach. Short stories! I did a bunch in some of my classes, and the format really works for me. Writing and storytelling are things I've been especially concerned about getting more of a handle on, and short stories are one of the best way to practice those things. Plus I get to play around with a lot of different ideas without having to tie myself to any of them long run!
    This is manifesting in a series I'm calling 21 Utopias. Basically 21 stories based on 21 of the Major Arcana Tarot cards. I've got a page talking a bit more about it on my tumblr, as well as the first comic of the series, The Tower.

I am, of course. Working on some longer-form comics. Obviously. But I will say its "working on" less in the sense of "it's going to be made this year", and more in a "I'm slowly writing this, but first I'm going to do a bunch of smaller projects to get my feet beneath me". I won't say any more about that, because it's not topical yet. Just that if there's some old OCs of mine you liked, well, they may someday re-emerge, in great and terrible new forms!

So that's Muse In Current News! Expect art to follow soon!

Hello there! I know you probably have no idea who I am but a friend of mine drew this for you awhile back and they're too embarrassed to link it directly to you, so I just figured i'd do it for them uvu Asylum Doodles by Rone-Ombre

Been a long time since we've heard anything from you. Are you okay?
MuseAmused Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Oh hey!

Wow, thanks for checking in on me. I'm okay. I wasn't for a while (broken arm + depressive episode+ some life changes), but... I got better :B I'm in a pretty good place these days!

Main reason for my silence is more a change of locale; I post a lot of my work over on Tumblr now. I should really get around to making a journal entry mentioning that... And possibly posting some more of my work here, I definitely fell out of the habit. But an artist needs to be available on as many platforms as they can!

ALL THAT SAID, thank you for your concern, I'm doing pretty well, just really busy and on DA less. Still arting away, still working on my stories, trying the whole "artist as a fulltime profession" thing.

Got a lot of new stuff over at my tumblr

... But for real. Thank you.
coldfire323 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014
Oh wow, I honestly wasn't expecting a response. I'm glad you're okay--more than okay it sounds like! I bookmarked your tumblr in the meantime. And of course the first work to catch my eye was fanart of Forge from Paranatural. Fantastic stuff. Heart 

Again, glad to hear you're doing well!
MuseAmused Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Ahahaha, well, I'm glad to defy expectations then!

Hee, thank you! I love Forge. He's terrible. But in such enjoyable ways!

Hi, just was looking at your old account and I was wondering if I could draw Asylum? And of course I'm saying he's yours.
Boromir66 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
thanks 4 the fave!
Emmybellbell Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013
I know I'm sure your tired of this but your work with Asylum with Danny Phantom was amazing I loved it!! You wrote it very well and your drawing was fantastic! I'm in love with it honestly. I know you say that you won't make any more but as a fan I turly hope you continue it (even though I nknownit was a while ago) and at least finish it. It makes all of your fans (and Danny's) wonder what will happen next, what would happen next. I'm kinda tired of wondering what would happen next consider
