"Because you demanded it. By popular demand, here's my very first art book collecting all my major ballpoint pen art. Not only will this book contain my unique ballpoint pen drawings, but I'll reveal all my step-by-step ballpoint pen techniques as well. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed making it. And as always, thank you for your support. You fans are the greatest." --Frank Cho

Ballpoint Beauties has been Frank Cho's most requested book on social media. He has been making his personal ballpoint pen drawings purely for himself for over two decades. This is the first time that these rarely seen works have been captured into a dedicated volume. Compiled here are his favorites, many which are done recently specially for this book. Many pieces are shown in four stages that are accompanied by Frank's commentary to reveal his process. He is completely self-taught which makes for a unique and educational experience.

Included within the book are visual guides for anatomy and body parts, plus a short interview where Frank discusses his working methods and answers the most common questions that he receives online. Also shown are comic covers for his creator owned property Skybourne, where he has incorporated ballpoint pen in a mixed media format to show you how to incorporate the ballpoint pen into commercial assignments.
