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.

Also! Thank you to all the people who stopped by because of or commented on my Pokemon article. I can't tell you how amazing the outpouring of memories, opinion and ideas were. I adore fandom in all its aspects, and seeing so many people from so many stages of life, fans who have been in this fandom for nearly 20 years and those who just joined with X and Y, all in the same place, sharing and being excited together. It's amazing and warms my heart. You guys... you guys are my people. :love:


PS: That first thing in this entry? That's a link. You should click it. ;)
