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!)

This is for Stanislaw Lem's classic book SOLARIS about a living "brain" planet that manifests images and memories on the space station in orbit about it. The 1972 movie from Russia was three hours long...and the 2002 remake with George Clooney was 90mins BUT FELT LIKE THREE HOURS!!! I did this in oils and wanted a more "sexy" approach to a space image....

Dearest Bob,

At the risk of sounding totally girlie... I LOVE the woman's hair!!

But what I really love is teh wonderful sense of movement in the work.

Outstanding again - as usual.

So glad that your finger has healed up. Take care

Thanks Annie! That hair was just a blob of paint I worked around and highlighted. She is a "ghost" anyway or something...this repro is not so good really, pretty dark in fact...

The finger. Yeah. It was a freak out for me. It drained me.
