    Default Help me identify this painting

    Can't seem to find a print for it using search terms like "Sea monster", "Kraken" (how I pull the image up on google images), "Giant octopus and ship" etc. Does anyone know the name of the painting or the artist? I want to see if it exists on all posters.com or art.com

    It might have been Bob Eggleton. Here's where I found this information: http://lair2000.net/Mermaids_Retreat...ch/Kraken.html

    There's a link to the guy's site/gallery at the bottom, but I don't really feel like browsing through who knows how many other paintings to find that one. You'll hopefully do it.

    EDIT: I found several other sources that give him as the author of that painting.

    Good work! Thank you. I'm kind of surprised that this seems to be a fairly "underground" piece of work. It doesn't even seem prints are available...

    You could always e-mail him: zillabob@cox.net and see if he has any prints available.

    I believe the painting was done by a fan, in honor of Tennyson's story.
