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

Poster sized prints are available. Just drop me a note:)

Deviantart sells them( become a free member and a window pops up on the upper right that you can navigate through a variety of choices), or if you would like, I sell them, and they are signed:) You can email me at jeffleejohnsonillustration@gmail.com and I will give you pricing and sizes (posters). Glad you like!

At first I was like, "Oh cool, a 80's picture." But then I was like, "Wait a minute" Then it was like, "OH SHI-"

I like that people are like "Oh, the blind mans reading a newspaper!" and "Is that an eyeball on his plate?" but no ones pointed out that he haS GILLS-

I am trying to buy a canvas print, but when I look at it the example "Gallery Wrap" versus "Espresso Box" I get a 16 x 16 in one and 16 x 20 any other. The 16 x 20 cuts off some of the original print. Which one do I want? For the original?

Unmounted rolled up seems like a good option if you have a plan for displaying it(mat, frame...)

I definitely think the gallery wrap is weird:) It looks like the espresso box is the better of the two.

So this was done for a Lovecraftian RPG?  I may need to find this book and read up on the system.  It looks amazing.

Deviantart sells them, and if you sign up for a free account you will get access to their print center, with lots off paper and size options. If you want, I sell signed, poster-sized (24" x 24") prints of both. Drop me a note here or get me an email address and we can see what they will cost based on where you live.

This is fantastic. You've probably already heard that there is a ripped off version on tumblr and as sad and annoying that is, I am having SO MUCH FUN trying to find all the creepy things with others!

Thank you!

I am aware, though I should probably thank the person who stole it, since the image has been traveling around the world ever since, sending lots of folks my way:)

I am mighty pleased that you enjoy this:)

I wanted to ask how many oddities there are in this piece, I count 11/12? And then 14 in the second piece you did similar to this one. How far off the mark am I?

Amazing work! I love how, at first glance, everything looks completely normal, except for that skull in the cup... and wait, the blind man is reading newspaper... IS THAT AN EYE ON HIS PLATE?! And it becomes a wild hunt to search for every small creepy detail hidden in the picture. It's both wonderful art and a great game! Thank you! :D

What's that sticking to the woman's knife(?), a filling that happens to be very sticky?. Oh and a bloody hand on the restroom door. And an octopus peeping out from underneath the counter. Why are there fingers and an eyeball on the newspaper man's plate?!? What's happening to the other man's face in the background?
