STGCC 2017: Booth Highlight - Treat Yourself with a Dose of Callous Comics!

Dr. Carlo Jose San Juan is a great example of how one can be scientific and artistic at the same time. He also proves that with determination and passion, one can have a busy professional day job as well as achieve success from your own creative ideas.

His comic strip "Callous", which chronicles the life of Dr. Rianne Nicah and Cal Duck (yes, he's a talking duck who guides her through good times and bad), has been on-going for over 20 years. It is also published in the Manila Bulletin.

Red Dot Diva knows that there may be many aspiring creators out there who already have their own webtoons, self-published stories or zines who find a challenge getting their work to more people out there. Perhaps, you might like to learn something from Dr Carlo's personal experience!

Red Dot Diva: Hi there! Please introduce yourself to the comic book/ cartoon readers here, and how you got into sequential art.
Dr Carlo: Hello! I'm Dr. Carlo Jose San Juan from the Philippines and I'm a practicing physician, cartoonist, comic book writer, and voice actor. Watching a lot of cartoons and reading a lot of comics when I was younger inspired me to pursue sequential art as a profession in the hopes of replicating the positive effect these media had on me on other people.

Peek into the World of the Peanuts Gang at the Singapore Philatelic Museum


There is something special about old-fashioned letters and stamps. Enveloped within a hand-written note or a letter scripted using a manual typewriter is the sense of anticipation and touch of romance layered with an air of mystery, invoked by the postage stamps of various places which one have not yet been.

The Singapore Philatelic Museum (SPM), located at a historic building near Fort Canning, pays tribute to the world of stamps and mail with archives of philatelic material. In recent years, the museum has rebooted itself by curating some of its marketing and exhibits by giving it a pop-culture slant.

One of its current exhibition is a ode to the popular syndicated comic strip "Peanuts" and its creator, Charles M. Schulz and launched in conjunction with "The Peanuts Movie" which opened at local cinemas last December. Incidentally, 2015 was also the 65th Anniversary of "Peanuts".

If you are a fan of the comic strip, you would already be aware that a whole lot of letter-writing is featured in the comic, with many of the characters interacting with family, friends and yes - even Santa - through snail mail. So, it is terrific that SPM is hosting the "With Love from Snoopy, Charlie Brown & the Peanuts Gang Exhibition", by bringing this aspect of the comic strip to life.

From The Simpsons To Pachuko Boy!

There are not many people who have not heard of "The Simpsons".

And for those who do watch the award-winning and longest-running American animated series, almost everyone has an opinion who their favourite Simpsons character is. At the least, one would have uttered "D'oh!" at one point or other.

But has anyone heard of "Pachuko Boy"??
Nope?

Ahh... here's where the nosy Red Dot Diva gives you the scoop about "Pachuko Boy", gleaned from an interview with Emmy Award-winning, comic creator veteran Phil Ortiz during STGCC.
