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!)

Ultra Monster Garamon!!


This odd looking creature is called Garamon, and he's from a 1965 Japanese TV Show called ULTRA Q, a strange monster who hatches from a meteor. Later, in the show ULTRAMAN he was re-used as mischievous mini-reature called Pigmon. Whatever the case, in Japan he's a legend!
