The Hidden Ones
reward item
$1
per month

Basic level support. Early access. 


No one knew the identities of the Hidden Ones. Some said they were unwelcome outcasts, yet there were a few who spoke of them as a secret society, rumoured to be of the highest order, pulling the strings from the shadows.


Includes

  • Access Patreon feed
  • Unlock Tier Reward Art (digital; print after 3 mo.)
  • Early access to Gentleman Cthulhu comics
  • Previews of writing and art (self-published & some traditional; when possible)
The Gilded Aristocracy
reward item
$5
per month

Full digital support and access.


The Gilded were obsessed with legacy. Only it is a curious fact that they did not quite understand the consequences of their willing yet blind participation. Did their self-satisfaction not allow them to see they were little different than those whom they spurned as their lessers? 


Includes 

  • Access Patreon feed
  • Unlock Tier Reward Art (digital; print after 3 mo.)
  • Name listed on website(s) & in self-published material 
  • Early access to Gentleman Cthulhu comics

The Abyss Hunters
reward item
$15
per month

Full support. Digital and print materials!


The hunters were not afraid to get their hands dirty, and they were a more than capable bunch. Though without the proper knowledge it is uncertain if they knew precisely what it was they were hunting. Bless them, they thought they were doing good.

Includes 

  • Access Patreon feed
  • Unlock Tier Reward Art (digital; print after 3 mo.)
  • Name listed on website & in self-published material

About

Up Next: J. M. DeSantis will be producing a new Lovecraftian horror print in September, then it's onto Inktober (October) and his fan-chosen theme for this year: Lovecraftian Horrors.

MORE ABOUT ME, MY WORK & THIS PATREON

Who Are You?  My name is J. M. DeSantis. I’m a Write-ist (my coined term for writer and artist). I write prose fiction, comics, and poetry, and I work in traditional media as an artist (typically mixed-media). I’ve authored a number of stories and artworks in the fantasy, horror, and humour genres, both traditionally published and self-published. These include my dark fantasy comic, Chadhiyana, and my humorous horror web-comic, Gentleman Cthulhu: Emeritus Moribus Monstrum.

Why Are You on Patreon?  Like most creators, I’m here to help fund my creative endeavours and connect with fans. To be more specific, I prefer writing and illustrating my own stories to freelancing, but it’s a slow build when you’re not working on established properties. I’m on Patreon to create a steady, base income and offset some business costs as I continue to produce my work, grow my business, and grow my fan base.


What is Patreon?  Patreon is a website that allows people to support creators on an on-going basis. Creators in turn offer rewards to their patrons for helping them reach their goals. I’m doing much the same.


How Rewards Are Distributed:
*Note that all previous digital rewards become available when joining at the $5+ levels.

What’s in Your Patreon Feed?  Like all of my web-based projects (my websites, blog, newsletter, etc), my Patreon is a constant work-in-progress. I do my best to keep my patrons updated on my work and projects, offer previews of upcoming publications (when possible), and put out news before it’s announced on my blog or social media. I even sometimes offer exclusive information.

Will You be Mad if I Don’t Contribute/Stop Contributing?  Of course not! Patreon isn’t the only way to support my work, and I can’t expect anyone to be able to or want to support me in this way. You can show your support by purchasing my writing and art or even by spreading the word about my work. Most importantly, I love creating too much to ever stop, so I’ll keep writing and arting either way, and my blog and web-comic will remain free.
Goals
$37.69 of $50 per month
Ad-Less!
One major thing I would love to do is take advertisements off of all of my sites (especially gentlemancthulhu.com & chadhiyana.com). With $50 per month, I could do this.
