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.

Dragons and Kittens and Down Time, Oh My!

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 8, 2015, 4:39 PM
Something of a more substantial update than the last one, huzza!

First off--how are all of you doing?? I've had two sinus infections in as many months, so I've been more tired and less productive than I'd like... but I'm on the up and up, and keeping myself busy!

Did you guys read my Cat Café April fool's article? DeevElliott approached me with the idea for the article, it was super fun to write! spotted came back with some revisions, wanting more focus on art foods as well as demanding that dogs be allowed during the weekend. Reading the comments was super fun, even if I was home, sick, in bed that day.

Also, FlightRising is open for registration today! It will close up again tonight, so if you want to set up an account, you'd best hurry! If you join up, drop me a line! I'm damphyr in the Light Flight. :D

I also have to say that I've really been digging Story of Seasons. The opening tutorial was pretty painful and had me concerned that I wouldn't enjoy the game. Fortunately, first impressions were incorrect, I'm finding it to be one of the more enjoyable and addicting Harvest Moons yet. I'm just about to enter Winter of Year 1, so excited for my romantic prospect to (finally) show up. :la: The music is absolutely beautiful this game, and while I'm still a little 'meh' on the graphics, I'm getting lost in how much there is to do in the game. At the same time, they've made a lot of the farming less of an actual chore, so it's easy to enjoy the game itself more. I'm also really, really digging the Conquest system, watching  my territory slowly expand. :evillaugh:

...Is anyone else sneaking peeks at the on-set photos of the Deadpool movie and getting as excited as I am? It's looking great so far, and they're even giving him all the facial scars that Deadpool is supposed to have! :excited: I expected that to be the first thing to go, because everyone wants pretty, right? I so hope this movie turns out as amazing as it should be.

Aaand finally today, just another reminder that DA will be in read-only mode for roughly half an hour tonight. Check out this journal for more info and a count down clock. If you see people panicking, please to be spreading the information! :la: Edit: Downtime is over! We all survived! Huzza! :excited:

That's all I have to ramble about just now, I believe. I'm looking forward to Game of Thrones starting again, anything you guys are looking forward to or dreading this season?

That little sprite art was made specifically for me, and it was added to the emoticon legend under my name, as it matched my avatar at the time. There are several emotes named after members or former members of staff! Examples:
