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 email@example.com and ENJOY!!
- Name: Bob Eggleton (Zillabob)
- 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!)

Concepts! Concepts! Concepts!!!
See? I have been busy! Here's some concept sketches to some upcoming covers I am doing. Top: The Dinosaurs of Mars-cover to a great Caitlin Kiernan book. The idea was to make an almost 1950's view of dinosaurs-you'll have to read the story to get the context, 2nd down: Dragon Done It-combine hard boiled detective mysteries and, magic in a book edited by Mike Resnick and Eric Flint and this is what you get! 3rd& 4th down, two Heinlein books I am doing. All these will eventually become covers, all the sketches were approved on the first shot-which means it's my best idea and thus, they'll be good pieces. I visualize things in my mind, and "see" the compositions and sketch them down with charcoal....it's a nice spontanious way to work.

Quick bits of news....
There's a FUN interview with me at SFRevu:
Just look at the "Interviews/Reviews" section on the front page and click.
Has a nice spread of work and kudos go to Gayle Surrette for asking some good questions!
I have a "How to" in the June issue (#18) of IMAGINE FX, I talk about paintings a day and, how to make a dragon look good. IFX is a British mag that is available at most Barnes and Nobles and Borders, roughly a month later from the original UK publication date, in the US. Fun magazine and great editorial staff.
Just finished some chapter headers and vignettes for a great book by Alan Campbell called LYE STREET. It has a cover by Dave McKean, and will be published by Subterranean Press. Nice to work on something "with" Dave as it were.
Working on more sketches and concepts for upcoming projects. More paintings, soon!
