Damon L. Wakes
Artist | Professional | Literature
United Kingdom
Damon L. Wakes writes just about anything that springs to mind, producing both novels and short stories. As well as promoting his own books, he makes an effort to share the work of those who are under-read, under-appreciated, or just plain awesome.

Author of OCR is Not the Only Font, Red Herring, Bionic Punchline and Face of Glass.

He can also be found at:

I think the video pretty much says it all, but if you'd like to find out more about this, you can do so on my blog on my personal website or over in my Shed on Unbound. If you'd like to get on board with Ten Little Astronauts and support my first traditionally published work of fiction while getting your hands on various amazing rewards (or just see the submarine video mentioned here), you can do so right here.

While I'm sharing this on dA though, I would especially like to thank these fine people for their support:

:iconraspil: :iconjoe-wright: :iconmonstroooo: :iconxlntwtch: :iconilyilaice: :iconzjoriz: :iconscfrankles: :iconjes6ica: :icongdeyke:

It's entirely possible I've missed some here since at this point there are a lot of names to keep track of. If I have, do let me know because it's often difficult just to work out who's who across different sites in the first place. I'd really like to know which supporters have come from where partly because going back there is often the easiest way to say thanks.

Also because it may make it easier to get in touch with the winners of future giveaways. ^^;

A Notice of the Utmost Importance!!!

If you're about to thank me for a llama badge, there's really no need!

I give out llamas as a less cluttery alternative to saying "Thanks for the +fav." Please don't thank me for thanking you! It could start some kind of gratitude feedback loop that's liable to destroy the universe itself!

Hey, no problem! :-) I spotted the dA URL on your comic and figured it would be a good way of staying up to date.

yo are you mongoose also you do amazing work gained some respect for you through your work and through your private messages i'm really young but some of your stuff inspired me a bit i'm not kissing up or anything I mean the words I say

Funnily enough, I was reading at Not the Winchester Poetry Festival this weekend, and they introduced everybody as "So-and-so, who is not..." Naturally I went with "Damon Wakes, who is not a mongoose." :XD:

Thanks for the kind words, by the way. :-) Everybody starts out young and nobody's born with a knack for writing or drawing, but the main thing is just to stick with it and finish what you start.

Sure! Though I should mention that I don't currently have Skype on my computer. I could add you whenever I get around to installing it again, though.

So I love your FFMs every year and I just found out that I wasn't watching you (when I couldn't yourname). No idea why not! For shame!

It's easy to do that with FFM: the daily journals mean you don't necessarily have to be watching someone to follow their work. Still, thanks for the watch! I'm looking forward to this year's event: only a week to go!
