Blue Plate Special by JeffLeeJohnson Blue Plate Special by JeffLeeJohnson
This was a particularly fun assignment. Done for Fantasy Flight Games' The Investigators of Arkham Horror, Tales of Adventure and Madness rulebook, which is chock full of great illustrations and graphics. Normally I spend a lot of time trying to create depth but the art brief had a "Where's Waldo" kind of thing going and I thought a flatter, more graphical style might be cool. © 2016 Fantasy Flight Games

My God, I keep finding more and more tiny details in it. I absolutely love how, with every passing glance, I find creepier stuff hidden away.

Finally, this has been wandering around tumblr with no credit till today.. Your work is wonderful and the details are incredible.. 

I am so very glad you are finally credited outside DA.

Excellent piece.

There is a Tumbler blog that was circulating this without the watermark. Glad someone liked to the original.

Also, the macabre details are awesome. Stemming from the obvious (Skull in the coffee), to the hidden (the many tentacles), to the incredibly subtle (the supposedly blind man readying a non-brail newspaper).

Creepy fun! 
Recently we played Arkham Horror for the first time and it was great fun (also extremely difficult - we never reached the end) and your artwork really captures that disturbing atmosphere of the game. And I just love illustrations with hidden images! Love 
A well deserved Daily Deviation!
