"You're an ox and a moron!"
    That line was from Oscar, a charming comedy film.  It's also where I heard of oxymorons for the first time.  Nowadays, whenever someone uses them they stick out to me.  I love them because they're so wrong yet so right.
    Oxymorons are phrases containing words that somehow contradict each other, such as Rianne repetitively uses in the above comic strip.  In fact, the word "oxymoron" is an oxymoron!  In ancient greek, oxus means "sharp" while
mōros means "dull"...

The Digital Age... Humbug!
    Believe me, I've tried. The phenomenon is not exclusive to medical books (though I do feel it is particularly true with them).  I just can't read books off tablet computers.  There are exceptions though.  I can read comics just fine!  And books that were made specifically with their digital aspect in mind seem to do okay.  But academic textbooks, novels that were traditional then translated to an e-book, and magazines don't seem to do so well with me.  It may be ...

I don't know, I've found the classic faces of celestial bodies a little bit freaky for some reason.  While I understand that Georges Méliès' Le Voyage Dans la Lun is an important piece of cinematic history, the iconic image of the "man on the moon" had always unsettled me somewhat.



On that note, I'd much rather see the kind of celestial faces seen in Irma Eriksson's Cosmical!

Today I received a wonderful surprise through Facebook:


Dr. Rianne Nicah and Ling Duck by Christian Kaw

    I was a huge fan of Heavy Metal magazine back in the day when it was readily available in magazine stores in my country.  It introduced me to the fantasy comic genre and to numerous artists who would later on inspire and influence me in my own craft, most notably Massimiliano Frezzato, who is to this day my favorite comic artist.
    It's memories of those days of reading the magazine that...

Hey everyone!
    As we charge ever closer to August 7, 2013 (Callous' 17th anniversary) I'll be featuring a couple of comic strips that had Dr. Rianne cameo in them.  These two are my colleagues in the Manila Bulletin, the newspaper that publishes Callous!

Guest Art by Cátia Ana da Silva

    This marvelous painting of Dr. Rianne and Cal Duck is by a wonderful Brazilian artist, Cátia Ana da Silva!  In the e-mail this painting was attached to, Cátia Ana explained that she had been painting (of the non-digital sort) using India Ink lately and decided to use this medium in depicting the main protagonists of Callous Comics while adding an extra touch that Rianne and Cal would love... she also used coffee!

This was actually a commissioned piece as Ferrari was at a nearby table during Metro Comic Con 2011.  I asked if he could try drawing my characters in his style and he accepted the challenge!  I was expecting a little sketch on a piece of paper but the following day he gave me this drawing which filled up an entire A3 sheet!  I gave him a free copy of my b...

    This comic page was my contribution to the Indies Maximus anthology/sampler comic book given out last Free Comic Book Day.  It's significant in several ways.  One of the most striking is the fact that it's a longform page, something I'm not used to doing.  It's also a return to Black & White, as the book was printed as such.  Furthermore, the panels were hand-drawn!  In a way, all the back-to-basics was a welcome change from the ever-growing digital aspect of the production of Callous Com...

I first met Teddy during the 2010 Metro Comic Con, where he and Work in Progress writer, Hub Pacheco, were going around the event floor handing out free copies of their series' introductory chapter.  I once again met the duo at Komikon 2010 when they released the printed first chapter of their comic (which I was fortunate to get a copy of as I heard they sold out fast).
