    This was just a snippet of a long discussion about art that I was a part of on Twitter at some point. I brought up the suggestion that art, being a form of expression, should be perceived to fulfill its purpose. Then, in reference to "the tree falling in the woods with no one around", I brought up the question that should art never be perceived, would it still be art?

    These were thoughts that I just threw out there. The discussion was fascinating and made me think, "what IS art, anyway...

Last night I was delighted to receive the following guest art for the 17th Anniversary of Callous celebration!

Dr. Rianne Nicah and Cal Duck by Michelle Soneja

    This absolutely gorgeous guest artwork is by Michelle "Shelly" Soneja, one of the artists of Robot with a Smile, a studio which provides artistic services for video games, illustrations, comics, and the like!  I love that she took some liberties with Cal Duck's relative size to Rianne, to very cute effect!  I admittedly haven't been ...

7 August 2013 - 17th Anniversary

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, August 6, 2013,
Hey everyone!
    Well, what do you know?  My little comic strip is 17 years old!  I would never have thought that many years ago that this day could be a reality... yet here we are.
    It's still so surreal to me that the once deeply hidden side of me would eventually spawn a second profession.  Thank you to everyone, readers and friends, for being so supportive!  And to those who have expressed just how much my work has brightened your day, as long as I can, I'll move mountains to keep at it...

Guest Art by Andrew Villar

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, November 26, 2011,

This intense guest work is by Andrew Villar of Ambush fame!  Colors by yours truly.

The original line work of this piece was featured before in the blog.  I thought I'd feature it again in color!  Depicted in this energized artwork is a battle-weary Amber Tiffany whose wounds are being tended to by Callous Comics' Doctors Rianne Nicah and Aimee Queens, who both have apparently seen some action themselves!

Ambush is a regular adventure comic strip published in the Manila Bulletin.  Be sure to fo...

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...

Guest Artwork by Sheryl Schopfer

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Thursday, August 4, 2011,

Starting off the celebrations for Callous Comics' 15th anniversary is this great guest artwork by Sheryl Schopfer, the incredible artist behind the endearing and charming comic series, Deer Me!

I first encountered Sheryl in 2009 as she was organizing the Webcomic Secret Santa Exchange.  I thought that doing such a thing on a yearly basis was quite nice of her and I started following her comic since!  I'm so happy she took part in helping me celebrate this milestone.  Thank you so much, my frie...
