    Robot's Dream
    Oil on canvasboard
    20-3/4 x 17-1/2 inches (52.7 x 44.5 cm)

    This piece was a collaborative effort by Bob Eggleton and Michael Whelan (signed by both) as part of an art demo at the 2007 Worldcon in Japan where this was purchased at auction. Bob started the piece with the robot, and then Whelan added the arms and nude woman in a bubble. As Bob noted about the female figure, "She's got that Whelan bum."
