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!)

Home and Dry....

(Music: The Pet Shop Boys catchy 80's song "Home and Dry")

Home. After 3 weeks of travel, 5 airports, 3 hotels, 2 rental cars, numerous dinners and lunches out...we're back. I can't believe we did so much!! AND survived! Bubonicon was a blast-a small but very cool little con in Albuquerque NM. You could feel the energy buzzing there!!! Hung out with writers Jane Lindskold, George R.R. Martin, Melinda Snodgrass(who I got the know after a long time of passing in corridors at SF cons!) Dan Abraham, Ben Bova(and his charming wife) and many more. Also caught up with artist David Martin who I have only known about 25 years.

I'm really exhausted. Had only four days to ourselves out of the 20 spent working-the other end of the business is talking, teaching and shmoozing in general. I saw so many Big Name SF writers my head was spinning after 3 weeks.

Even the Writers/Illustrators of The Future week/event was just energized and full of great faces to see. Spent some time with Charles Brown of Locus Magazine. Caught up with Aleta Jackson-a pal who of many years who is now designing spaceships that REALLY work in the Mohave Desert.

More soon. I need to re-acclimate with my home surroundings!!!
