Mars art by SF artist Bob Eggleton

Bob’s ART du Jour, the blog of award-winning science fiction, fantasy, and horror artist Bob Eggleton, has images of two beautiful 8x10 oil paintings depicting rockets on Mars: “Mars Lift Off” and “Martian Mists.” Both paintings have been sold.

Eggleton is in the process of doing the artwork for two book covers that have Mars as the theme. Meanwhile, check out some of his earlier book covers:

Labyrinth of Night (1992), by Allen Steele

Man O’War (1996), by William Shatner

Rainbow Mars (1999), by Larry Niven

Martians and Madness: the Complete SF Novels of Fredric Brown (2002), by Fredric Brown, published by the New England Science Fiction Association

The Martian War: a Thrilling Eyewitness Account of the Recent Invasion as Reported by Mr. H.G. Wells (2005), by Gabriel Mesta

Carl, yeah, Bob Eggleton has done some amazing artwork. And your "Out of This World Mini-Challenge" has been quite successful, too!
