Keeping with my recent series of non-sport art cards, this time out I’m presenting the 1995 90-card set put out by FGP. Bob Eggleton, like some of the others that I have talked about in the past, is an American science fiction, fantasy and horror artist. He’s won the Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist eight times so far and has worked in a variety of media, including book covers, posters, cards for Magic the Gathering, and due to his life-long love of Godzilla, he was a design consultant on the 1998 film, as well as having been an extra in a Japanese Godzilla film.
While this series has a wide variety of topics, he’s got a ton of dragons and dinosaurs (the origin of his love for Godzilla), as well as some of his classic organic space ship designs. His artwork is really gorgeous and he talks on the back of the cards about how he came up with the ideas and the process that goes on in his head, which is quite interesting for anyone interested in being an artist or understanding how artists operate.
As always, please click on the individual images for a closer look. Thanks for taking a look at the 1995 Bob Eggleton series and I hope you’re looking forward to more.
