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!)

After a Great Weekend!

This past weekend, we had John Davis and his wife, Kim up to visit. I feel like we've spent the last YEAR with them we'ev had visits of such regularity!!! John and I spent two and a half days brainstorming for a project(more info soon!) that we're creating together. It's terrific fun working with this guy-he's become a good friend and is an amazing writer to boot. The weekend was spent showing them around Rhode Island. We went to the Newport Cliffwalk which in all my years of living here, even I have not been on!!! So it was a first. And we had good food and conversation, as we always do. They're first class friends. When showing anyone around our state we always feel we're finding something new out ourselves.

The other bit of cool news is that I am about to ink a contract to write a NEW book. This'll be an instructional book-BOB EGGLETON'S ULTIMATE DRAGON PAINTING BOOK is the working title. It's going to be alot of work, but, as we'll see it'll look terrific when it's done. I didn't want to say too much about it or who it's with, but that's what I can tell you now. Everyone has asked me how I make dragons and so on, well, this will be the "book" on how I do it.

Saw THE DARK KNIGHT and MAMMA MIA! and I can recommend both films!!! I'm a ABBA fan from 30 years ago so I was sold on MAMMA MIA! some time ago anyway!
