April Fools!
    Once again Aimee plays a gag on Rianne on April 1st!
    And it's true, behind the serious and caring side of doctors lies a joker. Or at least someone who loves (and quite often really needs) laughter. There's a dark side to the medical practice that I purposely shy away from in this comic strip series. At the very least, being in the funny pages (Plug! Buy the Manila Bulletin!), it would be counterproductive for Callous to go down that road. I guess I sometimes touch that stu...

Flowers for you!
    This was actually supposed to be my Valentine's Day strip for 2014 but I was particularly busy during that time so I was unable to submit this to the Manila Bulletin before its intended print date.  But it was inked and scanned so I had to come up with a completely new set of dialogue.  Like a "Caption This!" contest only I was the sole contestant.
    It turned out to be a bit fun and the overall theme of doing something nice and platonic remained.
    I did actually do thi...

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...

    Hey everyone!  Here's a bonus comic strip for today! :D
    Looks like another year has passed and it's Dialogue Free Comics Day once more!  Organized annually by Noel Curry, he explains "Dialogue Free Comics Day" as follows:
    "Too often, when writing webcomics I forget that this is primarily a visual artform and so to emphasise that, I’ve set myself the challenge of posting a dialogue free comic on that day..."
    I've contributed every year so far and yet it's still hard to kick the...

Sunshine Share

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, November 7, 2011,

    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...

Accidental Doc

This comic strip is for 2011's April Fool's Day and features Desmon and Violet from Plus One by Dustin Reese!
It is apparently popular among cartoonists to do an April Fool's Day Comic Strip Switcheroo / Switcheroonie.  Last year I did one with roxxiiee who does the comic, Afrodite.  I had planned to organize a pretty grand one for 2011 but unfortunately it completely slipped my mind.

I only got reminded of the occasion at the non-recorded tail end of an episode of the TGT Webcomics podcast I c...
