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

You probably already know this, but someone on the hellscape known as tumblr stole this.

I am a huge fan of surrealism, and I know that isn't exactly what this is, but I am a huge fan of it nevertheless. It is an absolutely stunning piece of work.

Hey. Just curious, is the ear on the man on the left supposed to be different at all? Also, the lady with the tentacle arm, are her shoes backwards or is that just design?

Love the picture by the way, lot's of things to find hidden around :D

Hi Jeff, really love this piece of artwork. I showed it to my friend and we kept finding so many new things every time we went over it. I’m currently co-developing a writing app called Prompt where visual prompts can be used to provide inspiration to writers. I can see that the image is copyright Fantasy Flight Games, however is it possible to be able to use this image as a prompt in our app? Or if not would you have any others that you might want to put forward? This is just the kind of image we are looking for in our initial line-up because there is so much going and so many potential stories out of one image. We naturally will be adding full accreditation and links to the artist’s work because we want to provide full exposure to all parties and hope to get more exposure for both artists and writers alike.

thanks

Danny

Danny, 

I will ask Fantasy Flight Games. Very happy that you like the many little stories in this. I loved paintings like this as a kid:) Still do!

I did just post a similar image in this gallery that you may enjoy, titled The Grand International Hotel. That image I own the rights to.

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!

Excuse me, what is the joke with the milk/coffee mate shaker part of the picture? I have seen people highlighting it but they haven't been explaining it.
