Bob Eggleton


Bob Eggleton Portrate 2Bob Eggleton is a highly successful science fiction, fantasy, and landscape artist.

He is the recipient of six Hugo Awards for “Best Professional Artist” as well as eleven Chelsey Awards, and the Locus Award. He is a frequent guest of honor at science fiction conventions in North America and all over the world. In addition, he has also served as a Concept Artist on the acclaimed animated movie Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.

Eggleton has designed and illustrated countless book covers for authors such as Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, Hal Clement, Arthur C. Clarke, and Isaac Asimov. His magazine credits include Astromony, Sky & Telescope, Science Fiction Age, and Fantasy & Science Fiction. He has also illustrated many of his own compilations such as Alien Worlds, Alien Horizons, Sea Monsters, Dragonhenge, and Greetings from Earth.

In addition to illustration, he appeared as a “fleeing” extra in the 2002 film, Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla.

Bob Eggleton’s artwork covers a range of subjects that might seem incompatible to many. His work spans “straight” illustrations of dinosaurs, landscapes, and plausible pictures of deep space, to illustrations in the most whimsical realms of fantasy. But to Eggleton, there is no conflict. His imagination crashes through boundaries without difficulty and working the different genres lends strength to each one. “Straight” dinosaurs add credibility to Bob’s dragons and aliens. Fantasy subliminally feeds back to the realistic to give those pieces an energy often lacking in specialist illustrations.
