Marianne Plumridge returns to the NorthEast ComicCon & Collectibles Extravaganza with new original artwork, prints, books and commissions.
Plumridge is an Australian-born artist and writer who lives in Rhode Island, USA, with her husband, illustrator Bob Eggleton. They share their home with over 1,000 Godzilla monster toys, and just as many dinosaurs, dragons, and other odd beasties and creature figurines. The rest of the house is occupied by numerous books, paintings, art materials, and CDs. It really is a creative atmosphere, where inspiration is never lost for long. In the last few years, Marianne Plumridge has returned to her fine art roots by refining her oil painting techniques. As well as painting natural subjects, Marianne has combined birds and robots into an ongoing series of ‘technology lost in nature’ paintings that include quirky tin toy robot adventures, to great acclaim. Her other ongoing concurrent themes of cosmic whales and pointy rocket-ship paintings still enjoy success and popular favor. The results can be found online at the blog “Daub du Jour“.
Even more recently, Marianne has revived her interest in painting figurative works and portraits. Her experimental, “self-testing” exploration of painting people again continues apace. In connection with her long held writing ambitions, Marianne writes book reviews and notes on her second blog, “Muse du Jour“. Finished works of fiction have found their way into magazines and anthologies over the years, as well as articles and essays.
Marianne continues to work on writing the nearly complete text for a book called “Bob Eggleton’s Ice Age America” for Impossible Dreams Press, in collaboration with her husband. It will feature essays and epic artwork and visions of prehistoric peoples, megafauna, and flora – and especially Mammoths and Mastodons. Marianne and Bob’s first collaboration as writer and artist, a children’s picture book called “If Dinosaurs Lived In My Town” was released in November 2013 from Sky Pony Press. One of Marianne’s ‘more than doodle’ rocket paintings graced the cover of Analog Science Fiction & Fact, November-December 2017 issue.
