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!)

Changes in thinking...

Back from The World Fantasy Con in Saratoga, NY. Lots of fun and, friends I haven't seen in ages. Really a good time!! I'll post some piccies soon!

I seem to enjoy fantasy and, darker work-horror, moreso than I enjoy space related work. Note my fixation with Lovecraftian work. I was once a "Fellow" of the International Association of Astro Artists. I dropped my membership and "Fellowship" in it awhile ago and, realized I haven't missed anything. I never understood what a "Fellowship" was anyway. One of my "FAQ's" is "Why did you stop painting space art?". Largely, because the computer has truly replaced the human hand w/brush in this regard. Computer/digital art truly is amazing, and, frankly, Hubble telescope pix and Cassini and all, have just put most "space art" to shame. That said, space is still a nice backdrop to use for sci-fi imagery...and I'll still do that anyway.

Speaking of, a couple of nice work-ups for some covers soon!
