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.

Comic-Con 2014, here we come!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 14, 2014, 11:42 PM
In case you didn't get the message: Don't Panic! Prep the TARDIS! Call the Banners! Comic-Con is (almost) here! :la:

I'll be heading down to San Diego with a brand new, shiny costume to man the DeviantArt booth, meet and greet deviants, hang out with fellow fans and, this year... co-hosting a panel! :faint: aunjuli and I will be hosting a panel Sunday at 12:30, discussing fandom and all things ship! We hope you'll join us, if you're heading to Comic-Con.

If not, not to fear! We'll have lots of stories and updates. I'll also be updating live this year... I've joined Twitter! :omfg: This is a new and horrifying thing for me, DeviantArt is the only social network I've ever been a part of. Please excuse me if I fail a little at Twitter etiquette. Give me a shout at @Kaydamphyr. While I'm stumbling through Twitter, I'm so excited to be able to share pictures, events and the whole Comic-Con experience in real time.

And now, I must scramble back to my soldering iron... this cosplay isn't going to light itself!

Be good to each other, hope to see you at Comic-Con very soon!

Are you going to be at SDCC?  I'm in Artists' Alley again (Yay, me!) so I'm keen on seeing all of you Deviants again.

I am! :dance: I'm hosting a panel and working the booth... and will hopefully have time to pull off a somewhat complicated cosplay. :XD:

I can't wait to see you! And you're next to Dave, he's been sharing my office for a bit. It's gonna be a good year. :D

Yayy! So this is the 3rd time you will have been to the Labyrinth Ball? I'm so jealous. Such good times and beautiful costumes.

Yup! It was huge this year, it falling on the 4th of July and all. Very fun, I noted you photos! :la:
