Welcome to my super late Sunday Art Blog. (Two days late, I know.) Things got out of hand this weekend with various matters and I couldn’t do the blog until now.

Today, I’m going to reveal my next 4 creator-owned projects as I throw my hat back into the creator-owned project ring. Some projects you may know and some you may not know. I have roughly 10 creator-owned projects that I want to publish in the next 5 years. Two projects per year. Except for couple, all are self contained mini-series.

1) “Drawing Beautiful Women: The Frank Cho Method” – Finished and at the printer. Out in stores November 2014. Published by Flesk Publications.

2) “World of Payne” by me and Tom Sniegoski. Spring 2015. Publisher to be announced.

3) “Skybourne”, story and art by me. Fall 2015. Publisher to be announced. (Hopefully in Baltimore Comicon in two weeks.)

4) “Guns & Dinos”, story and art by me. Spring 2016. Publisher Delcourt and Image Comics.

In the coming months, I’ll showcase some advance pages from my various creator-owned projects. Today’s image is from my sketchbook that I sometimes carry around, scribble and jot down story ideas. I’ve thumb nailed and sketched out various scenes from “Skybourne”. These are cover ideas and the thumbnail for the very first page of “Skybourne”.

Frank Cho: Skybourne's Grace
Frank Cho: Skybourne’s Grace

It has been a fairly relaxing few days for me. After being buried under several projects for the last 5 months, it’s nice to wrap all those projects up and come up for air. Even for a short period of time.

Well, being a workaholic, I’m back in the thick of things. I started illustrating the “World of Payne” project full tilt and during breaks, I’ve started doing character designs for my other creator-owned project, “Skybourne”. And here’s one of the character, hot off my drawing desk, Skybourne’s badass little sister.

Now, I’m flying into San Francisco for an art lecture and demo at San Francisco Academy of Arts and the “Drawing Beautiful Women” book launch party/store signing at Lee’s Comics…

Man. Looking at my new schedule, I need another break. ;-)

Creator-Owned Projects Week

I had a great trip to California visiting the Flesk Publications headquarter in Santa Cruz. It was packed week of fun and work. I managed to sign all the “Drawing Beautiful Women” books and helped ready them to be mailed out. I did a store signing at Lee’s Comics in San Jose. I was also privileged to give an art lecture and drawing demo at the prestigious San Francisco Academy of Arts. Not to mention ate at some of the finest restaurants in the Bay Area. Very full week. Big thanks to John Fleskes and crew for making it a fun and productive week.

Now I’m back home again, back to the cold east coast weather and right back on the creator-owned projects saddle. I’ve been splitting my time between “World of Payne” and “Skybourne”. I’m enjoying them both immensely and can’t wait to finish them. Both projects will be out next year 2015. Here’s the latest “Skybourne” character design.
