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!!

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!)

Algis Budrys RIP

Just got late word that a friend and, classic SF writer Algis Budrys-"A.J." as we called him-has passed away. He had some serious health problems over the years and this all caught up to him unfortunately.

Yet another great mind.

I had the pleasure of meeting him once in Hollywood. He impressed me with how he seemed to blend in to the group (in an old print t-shirt) until he distinguished himself by speaking.

It made an impression.

He was a great guy and, wrote some great stuff that seems to be almost faded away into obscurity.
This is why I like to remember these people. We live in such fast changing times...
