Bob Eggleton one of 50 Best Living SF/F Artists

Congratulations to award-winning science fiction and fantasy artist Bob Eggleton, who was recently named as one of the 50 Best Living SF/F Artists by the British digital art magazine ImagineFX. While Eggleton's artwork has spanned many themes over the years, he has produced quite a few works of Mars art, including the covers of these books:

Labyrinth of Night (1992), by Allen Steele

Man O’War (1996), by William Shatner

Rainbow Mars (1999), by Larry Niven

Martians and Madness (2002), by Fredric Brown

The Martian War (2005), by Gabriel Mesta

Eggleton maintains his own website and blogs at Bob’s ART du Jour, where you can browse (and buy) some of his Mars art.
