Schedule for the rest of 2010

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 Under: 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).  After which I'll be back to publishing daily (7-days a week).

Guest comics / artwork:
So the site has been opened to guest work!  If you ever felt like doing one for Callous, now would definitely be a great time to do so!  If interested, here are the details:

  • Please keep things Callous-related!  Your guest artwork or comic strip should feature at least one recurring character from the Callous comic series.  If you have your own comic series feel free to feature your characters in the guest artwork/strip!
  • Your submitted comic strip will be published at a 850 pixel width, regardless of the height, at 72 dpi.  Single-panel comics will be published at a 600 pixel width, regardless of 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 any PG-7 material and some PG-13 depending on the content.  As for being funny?  Of course, it's better that way, but feel free to be expressive with your comic strip within these boundaries, funny or not.
  • Publishing time depends on several factors, but if accepted it will be online as soon as possible.
  • If you have any questions, you can post them as a comment here or send me a wall post, direct message, or private message in the following venues:
  • You can send your finished art/comics as an e-mail attachment 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.  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 comic or any art-related site, please include your site's URL, a description, and a standard banner image for promoting your site.
Komikon 2010:
Callous and I won't be participating due to the aforementioned non-comic matters, unfortunately, but I plan to next year.  Nevertheless, I'll be passing by the event to buy some of my favorite indie comics and hopefully to see a few friends.  Watch out for my blog post on my experience there!

Hoo boy, I got a LOT planned for next year!  Follow me on Twitter and join the Facebook Fan Page to stay updated!  If you thought 2010 was a big year for Callous, 2011 is going to be Godzillanormous!
