Additional Updates

J. M. DeSantis Blog Post

Just a small update this week, folks. I’ve been rather busy the past few weeks, juggling a bunch of different things, and amongst them I’ve been making changes and adjustments to this site. Last week, the menu bar went through an update, and since then I’ve even updated it further. Nothing has been removed from the site that was formerly here, but if you can’t find a page, chances are it has been designated to the Miscellanea section (which will continue to contain everything which does not have its own heading).  Read more… ›

Continual Transition

J. M. DeSantis Blog Post

After last week’s announcement that Rosarium Publishing is going to be the publisher for my graphic novel, Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows (chadhiyana.com), it seems like anything I could possibly write about this week would be trivial in comparison. That is, anything except for a release date, but I don’t have one yet. So this week, I do not aim so lofty. It’s merely a week of updates, and some information on why I think 2015 is going to be “something of a transition year” [from last week’s post].  Read more… ›

Changes Made

If you missed my post last Thursday on Facebook, Twitter and Google+, I mentioned that there was a certain document of interest which was placed in my e-mail last week. That particular document is the harbinger of the big news I’ve had coming for a long time. The end is nigh. And with that, some changes have been made in preparation for its coming. Read more… ›

New Top Banner

I’ve actually wanted to do this for a couple of months now. Though I still love both pieces featured in the former top banner, they’re both a little out of date. What’s more, the old banner listed my title as Writer-Illustrator, though, for some time now, I’ve referred to myself as a Write-ist (Writer-Artist). So, I decided to finally take the time to create a new banner image. Read more… ›

Chadhiyana Art Added to the Fantasy Art Page

Sorry, folks. Things are just a little crazy this week. I didn’t have much in me for a proper blog entry. However, I noticed I hadn’t update my Fantasy Art page with Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows cover (my newest Chadhiyana project–a graphic novel–if you didn’t know). So, I added it. It’s one of my favourite paintings I’ve done to date. You can check out the art, again, on the Fantasy Art page. Though, better yet, you can start reading the graphic novel on chadhiyana.com, if you haven’t already. It’s already five pages into Chapter I (after the Prologue). See you next week!

A New Excerpt in the Comic Script Section

It’s been a while since I updated the writing section with new content. Not since early last year when, before my life became consumed with Chadhiyana, I had a few new short stories published in various anthologies from Static Movement and Norgus Press. Anyway, today it’s more Chadhiyana. I’ve been meaning to share the scripts from the first two Chadhiyana stories (A Saviour in the Dark and Chadhiyana and the Serpentstill available in the comic, Chadhiyana, on IndyPlanet.com). Never mind I’m always looking for ways to call more attention to my writing. So, what better solution to all of these problems than to upload an excerpt from the first Chadhiyana story, A Saviour in the Dark? Read more… ›

Update to the Comic Pages Gallery

Chadhiyana: In the Company of ShadowsIt’s been busy, to say the least, while I continue to work on my graphic novel, Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows, and with other projects coming in (such as the book cover I alluded to last week). As it is, there’s a lot of new artwork I should be adding to my Art Galleries and perhaps an excerpt from the Prologue of the graphic novel script to add to my Script Writing page. So, for the next few weeks, in between regular blog posts (and some holiday wishes–what with the Holidays coming up and all), I’ll probably be doing a lot of gallery updates again. What’s more, I could really use a break from straight blogging for a bit with all the work I’m juggling right now. Read more… ›

Sketches Gallery Update

My Flowerbed sketchSince late April, I’ve been updating one or two of my website’s art galleries each month in an attempt to not only catch up on some of the artwork I’ve been meaning to post for quite some time, but also to update the galleries with larger (and thus more detailed and visually descriptive) thumbnail images. And this week, the final gallery, the Sketches section, has at last been updated. Read more… ›

Site Back to Normal and a Gallery Update

Ghost Rider small sketchAs of yesterday, jmdesantis.com is working to full capacity (after about a week of having problems due to issues on its hosting end). That means I was finally able to update the Miscellaneous Illustration gallery, as I’d planned to do last week. The update is somewhat small compared to many of the others that have been happening over the past few weeks. Even so, there are some great pieces there that I’ve been waiting to share on this site.  Read more… ›

A New Horror Web-Publication and Two More Gallery Updates

Book of LiesI 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… ›
