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!!

My Photo
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!)

The New Studio and Photography Set Ups...

Me in what was once my mom's living has northern lighting and a cathedral ceiling! It'll get lots messier.

Our good friend Fran Paliotta setting up a shoot of some art for my upcoming dragon book. I did the step-by-step in one day, of this particular dragon and we found we needed to follow some very stringent rules on how the publisher wanted the art photographed.

Our "handmade" photo board, and a color chart(almost impossible to find in this day of digital art, no one "photographs" art anymore! Here you see stage 1 of the painting of this demo dragon...more to come tho, I can't show too much of the book as per agreement.

More Dragons....

Here's a book I will be featured in along with several other "dragon" artists such as Todd Lockwood, and John Howe. It's available for pre-order on, but will be available in Barnes & Noble in August, or so they tell me. I have a nice spread and interview with me in the book. The format is really nice too, kind of a square I highly recommend it to all dragon lovers.

Dragon's Ring

Here is the finished painting, 24 x36 and one of my best dragons in ages. Really happy with the way it came out. I wanted an epic and that is what I gave them. Dave Freer, the author liked it too so much he gave it his "Writer GoH Award" in the Lunacon Art Show.
