Halloween, Dark Souls & Other Idle Occupations

J. M. DeSantis blog

It’s October 25th. Halloween is a little less than a week away, my birthday is a little more than a week away and the first Dark Souls III DLC, Ashes of Ariandel, is available today for all the travelers of Lothric to discover and explore (I’m a huge fan of the SoulsBorne games, if you didn’t know). That said, one can expect I’ll be immersed in otherwise idle occupations for the next week or so, but that’s not to say I won’t be working on at least a few things, here and there. Read more… ›

Happy New Year!

Though it’s a few days early, I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2016 is a wonderful and successful year for us all. If you wish, you can go back a couple of posts and read my reflections on 2015. Otherwise, I’ll see you all in the new year with the next issue of Chadhiyana, more Gentleman Cthulhu and much, much more!

All the Best,
J. M. DeSantis

Happy Holidays 2015!

Even though Hanukkah has passed and Kwanza and Christmas are not quite here yet, I usually take the week of Christmas (the particular Holidays holiday that I celebrate) to wish everyone Happy Holidays and take some time to enjoy this time of the year. So whether you celebrate the Holidays or not, belated or early, Happy Holidays to you and yours!

All the Best,

The Only True Remaining Holiday

J. M. DeSantis Blog Post

Despite the most recent Gentleman Cthulhu comic I posted (“Giving Thanks” on gentlemancthulhu.com–which, actually, proved popular when Strange-Aeons Magazine re-posted it on their Facebook page), I don’t have a cynical opinion of Thanksgiving. Certainly, its origins are questionable at best, but the way in which its celebrated today I think can be taken separate from its beginnings. Family and friends get together to enjoy a bountiful home cooked meal (some do go out instead, I know) and enjoy (or tolerate) each other’s company. But that’s what holidays are supposed to be about at their heart, aren’t they? Read more… ›

Happy Thanksgiving

Though my blog posts are posting a day earlier since the summer (I used to post on Wednesdays) and so this may seem as coming a little early, I wanted to take the time to wish all of my American fans and readers a Happy Thanksgiving! May you spend it with those you care about–and I hope the food is good and plentiful too.

If you’re looking for a little more from me and maybe some artwork about the holiday, check gentlemancthulhu.com tomorrow for a Thanksgiving themed comic. See you next week–likely a few pounds heavier from gorging myself on turkey and stuffing (which I never used to much like when I was younger, but it grew on me over time).

Cheers!
