My (AWESOME) Birthday Gift

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Thursday, December 23, 2010,

I love December.  This month, the humid heat of this little nook in the tropics I call my home gives way to a nice, cool breeze.  Even as you walk down the street there seem to be a lot more happy faces than usual.  It's a great time to be in my part of the world!

December, as you all know, is where the holiday season reaches the peak of it's soaring crescendo.  You see, in the Philippines, the build-up toward Christmas begins in September.  It's that big of a deal here and the festivities are...

Schedule for the rest of 2010

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, In : News, Announcements, Events 

Comics update schedule:
As the year is fast approaching its end, my need to concentrate on non-comic matters have increased.  So with great reluctance, I have to put Callous on yet another break.  From September 23, 2010 until October 17, 2010 I cannot produce any new Callous comics.  Then from October 18, 2010 until October 31, 2010, I'll be updating twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays).  Then from November 1, 2010 until January 9, 2011, I'll be updating only once a week (probably Sundays). ...

My 2010 Metro Comic Con Experience

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, August 30, 2010,

Early 2010 while my fellow webcomic creators were having a grand time in comic cons around the world, I felt a twinge of jealousy.  At the time, however, I felt Callous was not ready for a comic con debut especially in my home country where it was practically non-existent in the local narrative illustration scene.
When Callous began its daily run in August 2009 after thirteen years of on and off publishing in various print and online carriers, I did the cookie-cutter motions of online comic pr...

I participated in the Webcomic Secret Santa Exchange for 2009 as a Safety Net Volunteer.  I drew a gift comic strip for Johnny Lin's endearing series "Orbit", which grew on me pretty quick!  Click on the links to see more!
