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.
-awarded October 2004



Thank you All!

Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes! :heart: I had a lovely day and made some real progress on my little project. I wanted to give a shout-out and a thank you to kozispoon, who drew an adorable toon version of me, which is now the header on my main page. It is so friggin' cute and I adore it. :love: It's nice to have a new graphic there, since my old one said $damphyr... and the $ is no longer in use on the site. :XD: Oops.

Not much more to update with just now. Labyrinth Ball is fast approaching, and I'm so excited to get my owl on again. I've added more feathers and more lights this year, hoping it'll be the most glamorous year so far! :la:

I hope to have some exciting things to update you all with in the very near future, but for now, this is all I have. Be good to each other and have a great day!

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.

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:

 Hi! I have a request of sorts. This might seem silly but there was this user, euclase, who made most wonderful portraits. But due to anons and trolls and tumblr, as has often happened, she now deleted all her work, both here and on tumblr. It's a devastating loss to all fandoms, even if not all people appreciated her splendid work. I imagine you get this on a nearly hourly basis and people pester you about harmful trolling all the time, but maybe someone on the staff could make at least a small memo for losing a good artist to the vicious hate?
