Going on Break / Open for Guest Work!

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, November 13, 2011 Under: News, Announcements, Events



    Hey everyone!  Early this year I anticipated that this blog post would have to be done toward the end of 2011.  Unfortunately, it has to come earlier than I originally thought.  So, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that I have to go on yet another break from producing Callous Comics until mid-January 2012.

    It's sad because the end of any year is a great time to be making comics and to be involved in comic-related things.  However, due to non-comic matters it is necessary to step away a bit.

    The good news is I'll be opening the main site up again for featuring guest comic strips or artwork!  If you've been wanting to submit any guest art or comics, now would be a fantastic time!

Guest Art / Comic Details:
  • Please keep things Callous-related!  Your guest artwork or comic strip should feature at least one recurring character from the Callous comic series.  You are also most welcome to maintain your own art style as well in depicting a Callous Comics character!  If you have your own comic series and would like to feature your characters in the guest artwork/strip, feel free to do so!
  • Your submitted comic strip will be published at a 850 pixel width (without the lateral borders), regardless of the height, at 72 dpi.  Please adjust your lettering or font sizes with this in mind so that text or dialogue in your comics would remain legible.  Other artwork will be published at varying sizes depending on content at 72 dpi.
  • Please submit your images in JPEG or PNG format.
  • I work really hard to maintain Callous as an all-ages comic strip.  Please keep things G-rated! I'll accept some PG-13 depending on the content.  Feel free to be expressive with your comic strip within these boundaries.
  • Publishing time will pretty much be as soon as I receive them, but I'll try to give at least a few days for your comic to be featured on the home page.  Your guest comic will remain in the site archive.
  • If you have any questions, you can post them as a comment here or send me a wall post, direct message, mention, or private message in the following venues:
  • You can send your finished art/comics as an e-mail attachment along with the requested details mentioned above to caz@callouscomics.com!
  • By sending a submission, you, the artist, agree to have your guest art and/or comic to be posted on callouscomics.com as well as its retention in the archives and to have a thumbnail image taken from it for use on the Guest Art / Comics page.  All copyrights to the submitted art/image remain with the artist who produced it.  However, all Callous-related characters and settings remain the copyright of Carlo Jose San Juan. The guest art / comic would not be reproduced in any printed material unless given permission by the submitting artist.
  • I would love to promote you and your respective comic and/or art website!  If I don't know you personally or have not corresponded with you before, please write a little something about yourself.  If you have a webcomic or any art-related site, please include your site's URL, a description, and a standard banner image (468 x 60 px) for promoting yourself or your website.
    Have a wonderful holiday season and new year, everyone!  See you all again in January 2012!
