15 October 2013 - Global Handwashing Day

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, October 14, 2013,

Hey everyone!
Today, October 15, is Global Handwashing Day!  So, in cooperation with the Infection Control Department of one of the hospitals I work in, I produced, directed, and animated this short PSA!
Proper handwashing is an easy and effective way to keep yourself and those in your community from getting ill!  Do check out THIS LINK to find out more about how handwashing can even save lives!
This was my first time to animate traditionally, so I went for the School House Rock and Sesame Stree...

Guest Art by Freely Abrigo

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Thursday, December 1, 2011,

This delightful guest art of Dr. Rianne is by The Manila Bulletin cartoonist, Freely Abrigo!  Here she dons a Cal Duck hat, which is cute in itself, but what stands out to me is her expression of utter glee!  It truly makes you feel her joy while it has you wondering what in the world has her feeling so great.

Such is the talent behind such beloved comic series as Kulas and Kapitan Tog.  I am very honored to have Rianne taken form from Freely's drawing hand!  You can certainly appreciate the c...

Guest Cartoon by Wendy Wood

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Sunday, August 7, 2011,

This delightful guest art is from Wendy Wood who does the comic series, Gilbert and the Grim Rabbit!  We've noticed this coincidence before regarding Thalia and Muscovy Duck's shirts and Wendy made this great cartoon off of it!

I first encountered Wendy in 2009 in the Webcomic List forum where she is an admin.  If you do go to that forum and want to personalize your profile picture and signature, Wendy's the person to go to!  But for that time, that's as far as our correspondence went.

Then, in...

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

For the second year in a row, I participated in the Webcomic Secret Santa Exchange which is organized by one of the first friends I made in online comics, Sheryl Schopfer, author of the great comic, Deer Me.

This year, I have the great fortune and honor of having Zoë Kirk-Robinson, who along with Jennifer Kirk works on such great comics as All Over the House and The Life of Nob T. Mouse, as my "Secret Santa"!  She made this delightful holiday art for Callous Comics and I love it!

Are you wonde...
