Bob Eggleton: Hugo Nominee Profile

Third installment of Hugo Nominee profiles:

Having won nine Hugo, twelve Chesley, and two Locus Awards, and The Skylark Award for Science Fiction genre contributions,
Bob Eggleton is arguably one of the genre’s most popular artists. His work can be seen on hundreds of books covers, magazines, posters and prints, and other products.

Eggleton has worked as a conceptual illustrator for the Academy Award nominated animated film “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius” and “The Ant Bully”.

Between demanding deadlines for book covers and movies, Eggleton has two art books of personal work, Dragonhenge and The Stardragons. Collections of his illustration work include, Alien Horizons: The Fantastic Art of Bob Eggleton, Greetings From Earth: The Art of Bob Eggleton, The Book of Sea Monsters, and Primal Darkness: The Gothic and Horror Artwork of Bob Eggleton.

Bob Eggleton has been elected as a Fellow of The International Association of Astronomical Artists, and is a Fellow of The New England Science Fiction Association.

When not working, Eggleton enjoys buying dinosaur toys, traveling, fitting in the odd bit of landscape painting, and watching Japanese monster movies. He is married to Australian artist, Marianne Plumridge. They live in Rhode Island in a condo largely populated by a legion of Godzilla toys.

You can follow Bob Eggleton’s work on his website and his “painting a day” blog.

That robot in the water picture is terrific! I hadn't seen that one before and love it!

Bob Eggleton (Zillabob) said...

Thanks Carl. It was afun piece, that was originally for a gallery show on robots, but that didn't happen, so instead Baby Tatoo Books asked me to develop it into a story-more on that later. And, apparently the Spectrum jury this year shared your enthusiasm, it was juried into Spectrum 14 which I'm quite chuffed about!

Irene Gallo said...

I have to agree, Bob, that robot is Fantastic! Keep us updated on the book when you can.

Carl V. said...

Sweet...look forward to seeing it in Spectrum and to hearing more about that hinted at story!

Manchess said...

Robot in the water--my all-time favorite Eggleton that, Bob! Please....ya gotta do more of those. Can't wait to hear about that 'story,' too.

You know, re: Robot in the water:
I liked it more when Hayao Miyazaki did it back in 1980:

For his Nausicaa movie and graphic novel.
