Where can I buy a print of this sci-fi book cover art?

Asked by Esedess (3310points) June 17th, 2015

Artist: Bob Eggleton
Title: The Raft
This is the piece: http://fineart.ha.com/itm/illustration-art/bob-eggleton-american-b-1960-the-raft-paperback-cover-1992-acrylic-on-board-185-x-255-in/a/7015-87138.s

It was auctioned off for $2600~ back in 2010. I just want a print but can’t find anywhere that sells it. Help please…

Maybe if you leave a comment on his blog asking about this he or some fan could help you. Good luck!

@canidmajor I sent him an email a few weeks ago… No response.. Although it seems in bad taste to bring up questions of a 23 year old piece in the comment sections of new work he’s selling today, I did that as well. The comment is pending moderator approval, which I assume it will not receive.

I can’t believe I found something that I can’t buy on the internet… What is this, the stone age!?! lol~

I’ll keep fingers crossed for the hungry fan, then… ;-)

Either work back from here or have a print shop make you one poster.
Legal or not, no one will ever know, and it would hardly be worth the cost of pursuing you if found out. I imagine the artist would be flattered, and the most that could happen is you would be asked to destroy your poster.
