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!!

My Photo
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!)

Some new art...

Godzilla 1962(conte crayon and chalk) SOLD!

Martian 'scape (10x20) Oils SOLD!

A couple of new pieces that were sold before the even got out of the barn. The bottom piece was a small and VERY last minute commission for someone's retirement party. It was a small miracle getting it done and dry on time! Well, I did and that's what's important!!!!

I think I need to do more drawings like the Godzilla. It's a very happy and satisfying way of working. I like the overall effect too, and it's more "finished" looking than a pencil drawing. You will see more....

Famous Monsters: I Have Arrived!

Back 41 years ago, I found Famous Monsters of Filmland. I'd already found MONSTER WORLD but that's another story. I loved this magazine, and dreamed one day I would have a cover of my art on an issue. Well, thanks to the new publisher of FM, Phil Kim, that happened!! Out of the blue he called me to work on his new incarnation of Forry Ackerman's somewhat lost magazine that had a sordid and spotty publishing history since the late 70's. This is a monumental thing for me. It's like the first time I won a Hugo or close. The circle has come full around for me, and the cries of "What are those 'monster books' ever going to get you?"

The theme of this coming issue is HP Lovecraft. The way things work is that, magazines have variant covers, and this is the Captain Company "variant" cover art, for AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS. A dream to do. If you want a copy, you have to order one online-click on the header to this blog entry and it takes you right there. And, wait, there's more. I just did another cover and that features an even bigger and more famous giant monster....from Japan....
