Bob's ART du Jour

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!)

Sometimes when I go to a show, I have nothing else to do but sit and draw. Well, this is the result of drawing like that, and what's better...I often sell the drawings on the spot. And it reminds me of how I want and need to do more *drawings* for the sake of themselves. These were done with conte crayon & white chalk, on Canson paper. The drawings I do are usually done to get down on paper something I want to do bigger in a painting. I like how the Allosaur turned out alot. Because it's all done on the fly, the drawings are sold there, and we have to shoot a quick digital pic to have some record of them. I posted these to remind myself to do more drawings.

Dude, I LOVE the Allosaur. Very nice! It is funny how reptiles have that great shit-eating-grin. It is like somebody just said something amusing...

then they eat you.

The Allosaur is my favorite, the Godzilla was kind of not that great, but, what am I to say, as it sold.
