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!)

Outta This World...again!

Shootin' The Rings(8x10, oils SOLD)
I did this also for Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle. It was sold by them,on the spot, before it even got out there! These rockets take a bit of time for me to make. The biggest problem is the creation of the straight lines-I usually have to get alot of reference, or a model to get the lighting on the rocket correct. It is not as easy as it looks. Then there is the touching up, making the stars and background. In this case the rings were a tough thing to make work in the perspective that I used. And in oils! All in all, a good chunk of the day-as opposed to my looser, sketchy work. But the results are often really nice, and people seem to like them, which for me, is pretty gratifying.
I kind of like the "old space toy" box style of art they reflect.
