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!)

Rocket Days of Summer..

15x30 oil painting, done for the R.A.Heinlein combo "Green Hills of Earth/Menace from Earth" Here is an example of how I can have a sketchbook drawing and make it work into a nice cover for a classic book. And it just kind of sums up summer's "rocket" days doesn't it?

Hi Bob,

Beautiful. Its got that "science fiction feel" all the way through.

Years ago while in England I was sunning in a sheep pasture (playing hooky) when this ungodly whiney roar began, coming from over the hill behind me.
Turned out that the Royal Airforce was conducting manuevers and the next field over was a dispersal field for harrier jets.
I imagine the sound I heard then is something like what it sounds like down by that stream right now.

WOW! sounds cool. Closest I had to that was an F-15 buzz some trees I happened to be near, he just came out of that cone of silence and WOOOOSH!!!

Thanks for the kind words
