Bob's ART du Jour

Hi, I'm Bob Eggleton and this is my painting and "life in general blog" but mostly paintings. Usually they're for sale. Anyway, if you like something contact me at and ENJOY!!

I am a Hugo award-winning fantasy/SF artist who works on both publishing projects and film concept work(such as Jimmy Neutron and most recently, The Ant Bully) but I have a passion for landscape work, small paintings and exploring the properties of paint. This blog will mostly showcase my "painting-for-the-day" as kind of a personal voyage. I'll also be inserting sketches,photos and ideas of projects I am working on, that I can, when I can, so look for those every so often(usually as paint is drying!)

What the Hell is this????

Shiny (oil, 5 x7 inches, $SOLD) Okay, so what is this? It's a "Space Pen". Literally, a pen is encased in chrome, and held in a "gravity defying" position by a donut shaped magnet at the base. I had wanted to paint this for awhile, so here it is, I did it on a scrap of board, and it all happened in something like 12 minutes!! I love an excuse to paint metal and shiny stuff. There is a meditative quality in just making all the little abstractions work...give, take,give...and fini!
