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!!

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!)

I just finished a cover to a new NESFA Press book of Poul Anderson's. I got to paint a classic image from a somewhat outdated-science story(but no less entertaining and good!) that takes place on Jupiter's surface, called CALL ME JOE. It's a fun, colorful image I'll post soon!

In the meantime I am doing a CD cover to the 60's British band Downliner Sect. My friend of them all is bassist Keith Grant-Evans who's just a great guy who knows how to tell a good story. He's got a living history of British rock in him, it's alot of fun. I'm doing the cover to their new CD and, some inside art as well. And, I met Keith many years ago thanks to Brian Lumley, who, by coincidence, I am doing the cover art to his new book for Subterranean Press!! All this has to be done this month. So posts may be uneven. What did I last say, that posts would be "sparse" and then, bang, I post one a day for like 10 days?

I'll also have some stock images in a new "Dragon" book by a UK publisher. Fun book that came out of the blue, I'll be one of many in the book. This is not, incidently, the Dragon "How To" book I am doing for another publisher there! More on all that as it develops!!

Also got some important business taken care of this week, as in "paperwork". I hate paperwork but it's something at some point we all have to get out of the way!

More soon, and I promise, some smaller paintings.
