Bob Eggleton (1960-) is a multi-awarded science fiction, fantasy, and horror artist.
Eggleton's drawing and paintings cover a wide range of science fiction, fantasy, and horror topics, depicting space ships, alien worlds and inhabitants, dragons, vampires, and other fantasy creatures. His view on space ships were that they should look organic, and claimed that as a child, he was disappointed with the space shuttles and rockets NASA produced; they were nothing like fantasy artists of the twenties and thirties had promised. His fascination with dragons originated with his childhood interest of dinosaurs, which can be seen in the book Greetings From Earth. His paintings are commissioned and bought at science fiction conventions, and used as book covers. Eggleton has illustrated cards for the Magic: The Gathering collectible card game. Eggleton is a fan of Godzilla and worked as a creative consultant on the American remake. While in Japan he appeared as an extra in one of the more recent films.
Asteroid 13562 was named Bobeggleton in his honor. Visit his SITE for more illustrations.
