Dimitri Jansma was raised in Harkstede, a small village in the shadow of Groningen (the Netherlands). He started out doing a page strip in The Riepe, the street paper of Groningen, and in the heavy metal magazine Headache. In addition, he provided coloring of the 'Ambrose' strip by Gideon Brugman and Orion Rose as well as for the comics by Eelco Koper.
Since 2009, Jansma is an artist with Drop Comics, an independent publisher based in The Netherlands. Together with artists Ranjit Dommisse, Jorg de Jong, writer Gert-Jan van Oosten and consulting editor Richard Boom, they are making comics for the international market. Jansma is the artist of the police series 'Sanguis', a comic starring Dutch radio stars Lana Wolf, Rob Stenders and Fred Siebelink.
