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!)

ILLUXCON-first read

We went to, and got back from Illuxcon in Altoona PA. Hats are off to Mr Pat Wilshire and his lovely wife Jeanne and their various helpers for basically wowing all of us with the superb effort in pulling off what may be the first "SF/Fantasy Art Expo" in the world of it's kind. All the names were there-Michael Whelan, John Jude Palencar, Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Scott Grimando, Omar Rayyan and his wife Sheila, Charles Vess...I could go on and on. It was as social as it was profitable! And worth the nearly 9-hour drive each way.

I'm too tired at the moment to go into details too much and we have some pics of the event as well.

It was the topper on a fantastic week, after the historic election and all.
