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!!

Location: New England, United States

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!)

The Problem with Martians...

The Angrier Red Planet(8x10,oils SOLD) One of my fun rocket paintings, this time with a Martian who likes shiny objects and, two unwary travellers. I always liked the film THE ANGRY RED PLANET(1960) so this is a step further. I wound up spending a alot of time of this piece especially getting the rock forms right(which are really textured). It's also framed in a black frame.

Heh! That's awesome. Tres awesome. I can just imagine the crew looking out the window and saying "Oh. Crap."

"Oh crap" indeed! I love when there's a little narrative going on.

A follow-up when the astronauts return might be, "Gee, I could have swore we parked here".

Fun stuff Bob!

In other words John, the caption could be:
A little in-joke for us Kaiju Shonen.

Cream of Tentacle Soup...I don't use the stuff myself. It promotes rust. That "new planet" is giving my brain too many ideas for pictures!!
