It’s good to see San Diego Comic-Con in my rear view mirror. It was a very productive show making business deals and laying out my future plans. I have a full schedule of creator-owned projects lined up. The next two years will be a roller coaster ride for me as I launch four creator-owned projects.

First on my creator-owned project list is “World of Payne”, co-created by me and Thomas E. Sniegoski. This is the action-horror story that we’ve been hinting about for over a year. Tom and I have been fiendishly building the “World of Payne” during our free time, filling it with demons, ghosts, monsters and other creepy things. The first “World of Payne” story arc will be called “Ghost Dog” which will introduce all the principle characters in this weird rich world of odd and ghastly things.

Tom and I will announce the launch date for “World of Payne” as things firm up. Look for more sneak peeks of monsters and character designs soon.

Some days the drawings just flow out of my hand. And some days, it’s a struggle. Today was an easy flow day, unfortunately it was for the wrong project. I’m under a tight deadline to get my Marvel book out, but I simply can’t. Not today. My mind and heart is on my creator-owned project, “World of Payne”, which I’m doing with hairy beast-like buddy and famed novelist,Tom Sniegoski.
In between drawing dudes in spacesuit for Marvel, I’ve been taking breaks drawing monsters for “World of Payne”. Here’s a quick sketch I did for fun this morning – Ghost dog taking a stroll through a demon infested realm. I’m gonna ink it as soon as I’m able.

But I gotta focus. The faster I finish my Marvel book, the faster I can start on “World of Payne”.

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”.
