Later, I came to realize that Bob Eggleton was better known in the science fiction and fantasy community as a fantastic artist of dragons and various monsters (Godzilla being a favorite). When seen at conventions Bob is unfailingly generous to fans and willing to share his knowledge and experience.From official release/information:
From Bob's website:
His illustrated books are: The First Men in the Moon by H.G.Wells (1989, Donning), Dragonhenge (2002), and The Stardragons (2005)(both with John Grant and published by Chrysalis Books), and The Book of Sea Monters with Nigel Suckling (Overlook Press).
His artbooks are Alien Horizons (1995), Greetings From Earth (2000, Paper Tiger)(Hugo Winner, 2001), and Primal Darkness (2003)(Cartouche/Steve Jackson Games). Bob has also worked as a conceptual illustrator for movies such as Sphere (1998), Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (2001) and The Ant Bully (2006), and the thrill ride Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas.
Of late, Bob has worked more on animated movie concept, private commissions, self commissioned work, and illustrated books.
He has been elected as a Fellow of The International Association of Astronomical Artists (FIAAA) and is a Fellow of The New England Science Fiction Association (NESFA).
He also appeared as an fleeing extra in the 2002 film Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla.
