Eggleton, is one of the hottest and most prolific
artists on the scene today. Bob is a multiple award winner not
only for his finely detailed space art, but he is equally at
home doing science fiction, fantasy and horror art. He was
awarded the prestigious HUGO award seven times. He is a frequent
guest of honor at science fiction conventions all over North
America and the world.
He has done countless book covers, for authors such as Gregory
Benford, Greg Bear, Hal Clement, Arthur C. Clarke, and Isaac
Asimov. His magazine credits include ASTRONOMY and SKY &
TELESCOPE, SCIENCE FICTION AGE, and FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION.
He has also illustrated many of his own compilations such as
ALIEN WORLDS, SEA MONSTERS, and the newest,GREETINGS FROM EARTH.
Bob's work is popular with publishers because of his dramatic
and colorful compositions, and because he has the uncommon
ability to meet a deadline. His technique is easily identifiable
as his own, striving for an interesting angle and dazzling
colors. He combines these elements to create a scene which is
glowingly dreamlike, yet starkly realistic. He paints furiously
with trance-like concentration, and seems to be able to paint
anything imaginable, even by his own fertile mind.
"Space art to me is pure feeling,"he says, "something anyone can
understand. For much of science fiction art, you must read the
story to appreciate the art".
