I just got my new Sketchbook from the printers. It's a full color jungle themed sketchbook called "Jungle Queens". It collects all my jungle themed art from the start of my career to now.
This sketchbook will debut this weekend at the San Jose Super-Con. I've only printed 1000 of these, so get'em while they last.
It's published by Brand Studio Press and will be up on their website soon for internet sales. Retail $25.

This is the first of two full color sketchbook that I'm doing this year.
The second one called "Mars Maidens" will collect all my Mars themed sketches
and art. It will debut in Hero Con in North Carolina. I'm also printing 1000 of those.
Mars Maidens sketchbook will be up for sale at the Brand Studio Press website later also.
I will save some of both books to sell at San Diego Comicon for those who can't make it to San Jose Super-Con or Hero Con.

Comic Creator Frank Cho Wins Top Spanish Comic Art Award
30th Annual Asturias Convention Well Attended by Comic Creators and Fans
LOS ANGELES (November 3, 2006) – Award winning writer-artist, Frank Cho, best known as creator of Liberty Meadows, and artist for the upcoming Mighty Avengers, was recognized for his achievements when he won two awards at Gijón International Comic Salon in Spain on October 14, 2006. Cho was recognized by the international comic community by winning the prestigious Haxtur awards at Gijón’s International Comic Convention in Spain.
Cho was nominated in four categories: Best Artist, Best Humor, Best Cover Artist and Best In Show. Frank Cho won Best Artist and Best In Show for his work on Liberty Meadows for Image Comics and Shanna the She-Devil for Marvel Entertainment.
Haxtur award is one of the most honored comic awards in Europe. Haxtur award is named after the famous comic character created by the legendary comic artist, Victor de La Fuente. Haxtur award ceremony is held every year at International Comics Salon of the Principality of Asturia in Gijón, Spain.
The convention was attended by world renowned authors among them the co-creator of the History Of Violence, Vincent Locke, creator of Hate, Peter Bagge, and Gilbert Shelton, the creator of Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, who participate in exhibitions, drawings, signings and panel discussions. “I’m pretty excited about this award and attending the El Wendigo-sponsored convention. It’s a great opportunity to meet and interact with fans, sign autographs and forge friendships with colleagues,” Cho said. “I was delighted by the Gijón International Comic Salon and its exhibition that promotes key themes in the industry today as well as exposure to some of the freshest ideas and most exciting new storylines,” Cho said.
In past years the exhibition has focused on important themes including: the role of women in comic artistry, intolerance as demonstrated through comics, censorship during the Spanish dictatorship, the role of comic heroes during World War II and analyses of the evolution of comic greats such as the French artist Georges Bess.
“Frank Cho’s achievements substantiate our belief that he is among the greatest talents in comic art today. We applaud his achievements and congratulate him on his Haxtur Award win,” said Lisa K. Brause, president, Golden House Entertainment, which represents the artist.
Frank Cho has a number of projects currently scheduled, including upcoming exclusive Spider-Man and Mighty Avengers work for Marvel Comics, Jungle Girl for Dynamite Entertainment and Voodoo Dolls with David Tischman for Image Comics. Cho has won many awards including: the prestigious National Cartoonist Society’s Awards for Best Comic Book and Book Illustration, the Eagle Award, the Charles M. Schulz Award for Excellence in Cartooning, Scripps-Howard Award for Best College Cartoonist, College Media Association for Cartooning, and Germany’s highest award, and the Max & Moritz Medal, for Best International Comic Strip. He was also nominated for the coveted Harvey and Eisner Awards. Earlier this year, all of his Liberty Meadows comic book covers were published in a deluxe hardcover edition and Cho joined other artists to distribute free copies of their comics, make sketches and answer questions for fans young and old. Frank Cho currently lives in Elkridge, Maryland with his wife, Cari, daughters, Emily and Samantha, and their wiener dog, Truman. http://www.libertymeadows.com/
