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!)

New Mexico Mammoths...

Columbian Mammoths near The Organ Mountains of New Mexico
This painting is one of the first for my upcoming Ice Age America book. It's in oils and 20x30 inches. Columbian Mammoths differ from their Wooly cousins in that they existed in warmer climates of the Southwest and West, and, they were huge-some as high as 16 feet. The object was to use reference of the actual mountains as they are today but imagine them 10,000 odd years ago in a very furtive and lush time. More paintings for this book, to come!!!

I happen to stumble upon your blog (I'm a graphic designer and was searching for some illustrator blogs, not like this, but I love it...) and I LOVE this piece and so many of your other pieces. I showed my husband and he liked it too, we both live in NM. I love the red/orange colors in the mountains. Great Job!!

AND going through your blog, my husband is a big dragon fan - so I know he will appreciate your work immensely.

I love it.
