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 something fun out of my sketchbook. I tend to work really fast on ideas and get the general composition nailed and then wait for a chance to paint the image. This was partly inspired by the amazing Saturn/Cassini images of being close to the ring shadows. I figured what would a ship close to some gas world's big rings see-tumbling chunks of rock and ice. Again, I'm obsessed with scale here. The small ship and the vast planet. One of the themes in my work is one of the big and the small. It's why I can say I like planets and cosmic vastness and the small spaceships, and in another way of looking at it, giant monsters and small humans.
I'll do some paintings coming up. It's been very very very busy and I'm breaking one of my own rules about not working weekends, but in this case it can't be helped much since I took roughly a week off two weeks ago.
