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 zillabob@cox.net 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!)

Starting a new cover...

As I said...busy is the operative word these days! And rather than be just totally M.I.A....I figured you'd enjoy seeing something in progress. So, here's a sketch for a cover I am working on that will feature Alan Dean Foster's popular "Pip and Flinx" series. Pip is of course, the winged dragon on Flinx's shoulder. ( May is a month for dragons, let me tell you.) Anyway, despite not being asked to, I wanted to do a wrap cover, because I wanted a big expansive planetscape. In this case, an alien world with a dead city on it. At it's center is a angular object called The Krang. To set off this object, I wanted to show it very hard edged, vs the curvy, organic shapes of the outer city. The sun rising symbolizes Flinx' coming of age. And I love painting suns-on-horizons with clouds and such setting them off. This promises to be fun. In the meantime, I hope to get some smaller works up, as I miss painting them, but again, business calls so I'll take it! I can almost say with certainty, a new dragon will appear on this blog by week's end as well....

I love the Pip and Flinx series! I have yet to finish the series, but I love the cover art for Mid-Flinx and I'm absolutely looking forward to this cover!

Great work as always!
