I was going to wait another week or two before I updated another art gallery. Instead, I intended to post information about some upcoming art shows I’m participating in and a small Boston Comic Con update (since it’s been rescheduled). However, I realised if I did that, I wouldn’t have an opportunity to update another of my art galleries until early-to-mid June! I couldn’t wait that long (and I’m sure you couldn’t either). So, not only have I updated two art galleries this week, but I also have some information about (and a link to) a new horror web-publication I’ve illustrated. Read more… ›
The Fantasy Illustration section of jmdesantis.com saw a big update this week with new artwork and a slight format change. I had planned to post new art in most of the illustration sections after the Bronx Heroes Comic Convention (May 4th & 5th), but I was in need of something to post this week since the Boston Comic Con was cancelled this weekend past. (I’m still hoping they will reschedule, and I’m relieved the last suspect in the Boston Marathon tragedy was finally apprehended.) That said, there’s still more new artwork coming. Read more… ›
I’m still hard at work on a new Chadhiyana project (and I haven’t forgotten my promise to reveal more about it in April). But since I haven’t posted any new artwork on the site in a while, I decided to add a few pieces I’ve been meaning to for a while now. And since some of this “new” artwork is a little older–though that’s an unfair word to use, as I don’t consider them dated and like the pieces very much (else I wouldn’t be posting them)–I thought I’d write a little something to go with their inclusion on the site.

Many of you who are checking back every week for new blog posts may have been a little disappointed the last few weeks to see that there’s been little but brief information about Chadhiyana’s price increase and some upcoming convention information. Or maybe I’m just feeling a little self-conscious after writing blog entries of 500-and-more words since the beginning of the year. Either way, as I explained in former posts, that may be the nature of some or even many posts here. Moreover, the new Chadhiyana project I’m working on is taking up most of my writing time of late. That said, I took some time over the weekend to make some minor changes to jmdesantis.com. Read more… ›
As promised, so I have delivered. Getting this ready took more time than expected (on account of having to learn how to build this blog from scratch, as I could not find anyone willing to do the work). But now the front page blog I’ve mentioned as part of my 2013 plans is finally here. Read more… ›
A little less than a month ago, I said good-bye to my long-term position as a substitute teacher for, ironically enough, one of my former high school classmates who was out on maternity leave. However, the real interesting bit in this story is the subject matter I was teaching: fashion. Read more… ›
The changes to jmdesantis.com are complete! Almost. The intention was to include a blog on the front-page (something I’ve wanted since I launched this site seven years ago), however, despite the increasing ease of creating blogs, I’m still having trouble programming it myself or finding someone who can (I’m not versed in PHP, nor do I wish to use a ready-made template or a separate blog provider). The blog’s inclusion would have needlessly delayed the launch of this new design, so I will leave it at this: the blog will be added, but it’s going to take some more time. Read more… ›
Stay tuned for new content and a slightly modified look for the upcoming new year!
