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!)

From The Black Lagoon!!!

The Creature(9x12,oils SOLD)I did this one, more or less as a request from a good friend that lost out to another Creature I did back in the Fall. I'd told him I'd do a new one bigger for him, so before I even posted it, it was sold. It's also just by coincidence that I finished it on the day that Stan Winston left us. One of his big inspirations was The Creature from The Black Lagoon. Okay, hands up-who WASN'T amazed by this series of film? Anyone? Anyone? I thought so. My intention is to do more Universal monsters. Hey, it isn't just Godzilla you see.....

Nice work Bob. It's always good to stretch a little bit. And if you go into withdrawal, You can always paint a destoyed Tokyo in the background.

Thanks Kenny!! It's always good to hear from you. We should talk more!
I'm working with Big Bad John D on something that's a spec thing for both of us but we gotta get something cool going in our lives that's "ours" rather than be hired guns all the time.

Hey, I LOVE The Creature. As much as Godzilla. Almost.

I really love this. Monster portraits have a tremendous appeal for me and when they're this good it's even better.

Thanks Eric! Means alot. I used to do portraits 30 years ago and this became monster pictures later. The Universal monsters are the coolest anyway..so look for more!
