Kay, damphy, etc. I am short, spunky and Texas born. I love everything from classic literature to comic books to Pokemon, and have been described as 'quirky' on more than one occasion. Yes, my hair really is purple, and has been for roughly eight years now.

I have dipped my toe into various industry waters, including reality TV and comic books, and am a two time San Diego Comic-Con panelist. I became a volunteer for deviantART in 2004, and did everything from moderating chat rooms to directing galleries. In 2006, I officially joined core staff as a member of CEA. I always enjoy a challenge and am often found geeking out over various shows, movies, books and games. I love art and artists and genuinely adore all the amazing and sometimes odd creations my job exposes me to on a daily basis.

Be good to each other!


Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`damphyr is one of those people who form an essential building-block of any community and we're especially grateful to have her in ours. Helpful to new deviants and old alike, she goes out of her way to find great art not only to highlight in her journal but also to suggest countless Daily Deviations to be put up as well. She's always ready with constructive criticism of the highest quality. While others moan about deviation violations, she does her deviant duty and reports them. Like any other great artist, she's never afraid to try new things for the sake of her art. For being not only a wonderful deviant but a wonderful artist as well, we recognize damphyr with our award for Deviousness for October 2004.

Writing and Suggestions

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 22, 2015, 2:12 PM
Phew, this turned out to be an incredibly busy writing weekend! :faint:

My article, Why is Winter Coming?, which was originally published at my blog, was also published here on DA along side some truly amazing artwork from the community! It's always exciting to see just how amazing seoul-child can make an article look, and seeing the speculation and all around passion of the community over Game of Thrones is always inspiring. You guys are great. :love:

In addition, I managed to put out two new articles this week! :la: I got my Recommended by damphy article up, and it's filled with books, movies, games and shows which I highly recommend to others. I also reviewed the New Nintendo 3DS, and was surprised how different it felt from the original 3DS, and how difficult it was to articulate the little nuances which makes me like the new unit so much more. I also got to pull out my huge, scary pine cone for the articles photos! :giggle:

I'm trying to keep up a steady pace of one article a week, and I'm very open to suggestions as to what I should include! What would you guys like to see from my blog? More GoT theories, game reviews, more stories along the lines of my Racist Fish tale? Some fandom rambles? Please do share, I'd be very grateful for any and all feedback and/or suggestions.

Wanted to give a heartfelt thank you once again for all the birthday wishes, you guys are just so sweet, it totally helped make my day.

How about you guys? What projects are you working on? Any exciting events looking on your horizons? Please share!
