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!)

Ice Age America...

Sabre Toothed Cat-chalk on Canson paper.

Columbian Mammoth-Chalk on Canson paper

Here are a couple of drawings for the upcoming BOB EGGLETON'S ICE AGE AMERICA which will be a book from Impossible Dreams Press, due out in 2012(Mayan calendars notwithstanding). It will be written by my wife Marianne, and will feature North America, circa 13,000 years ago. It will have some EPIC large paintings in it, so get ready for those. The feel of the book will cross the lines of fact and science as we know it, to a little fantasy and romantic feeling. We have a publisher who sees our vision and that's really a good feeling.

Excellent portraits - my daughter will love the sabretooth image, as she's a huge cat fan. Love the shading and the feeling that they occupy real space, and aren't just lines on a page.

Love the ways there drawn, seems each hair was drawn on with great care, though it'd be interesting to see the Saber-Tooth made full body.

Hey Bob,
Just wanted to drop a long overdue note. Met you and your lovely wife at the World Fantasy con in Saratoga; truly enjoyed talking with you and hope to see you again. My daughter was thrilled by your dragon book, and the personalized dragon sketch you did for her! She would also really dig that Sabretooth tiger, I'll have to show her tonight!

Please give me a holler sometime, especially if you plan to get down toward DC!
Be well, and Happy Thanksgiving-

Bob Giarrusso
