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!!

My Photo
Name:
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!)

JAPAN BLOG: Back from Japan....



Here's some pictures, courtesy Michael Whelan of the big painting jam that was held in Yokohama at the 65th World SF Con. Pictured are Naoyuki Kato-*the* premier Japanese SF illustrator, Nippon US Artist GoH Michael Whelan and, me. I'm really massively jetlagged, so more pix and thoughts soon, only to say this was an amazing, and fantastic experience bringing all our talents into a series of paintings that wowed the crowds. Lots more soon as I cover some of the art I did with friends at the World SF Con.
As to blog paintings, all the ones you saw earlier, as marked for sale at Nippon, sold outright, with Godzilla 1954 selling for a whopping $1200. in an auction, to a Japanese buyer. No higher compliment than that!!
