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!)

Last year, I was asked to illustrate MBI/Easton Press Centennial Edition of  TARZAN OF THE APES. This is a gorgeous book, lavishly printed and bound. It also has eight color plates and numerous b/w chapter headers and I signed 800 copies. A dream job.  It is just out now, via MBI/Easton Press....

In 2011, I was selected by a German company to make a calendar of my dragon images. The attractive part about this calendar is that it's size and format made it MUCH more interesting and a nicer item than anything I had seen in the US in terms of calendars. Sadly, the company does not have a distribution here. That is, until I secured a VERY limited number of calendars!! Here is a selection of images from various months. It's in German but, numbers are numbers.   These are BIG, 20 x14 inches with the art being the most prominent feature on this wall calendar. Because of import cost, I am selling these at $30.00 each and because they have to be sent Parcel Post, that cost is $12.  So, $42 is the total cost, and what you are are art-print quality images that can be framed after 2013 is over!! And, I sign the cover for you! 

 And I still have copies of my limited edition sketchbook. It's limited to  250 and it's $20 + $5 postage and handling.
And this is an image from my illustrated version of HG WELLS' FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, published in 1989 by Donning. I offer signed copies of the book for $12 which includes postage and handling.

I take Paypal, please write me at if you are interested in any of these items. REMEMBER! Multiple items means combined shipping and I'll let you know what that will cost!
