In the vein of my Blue Plate Special, I am posting the next image in the series, The Grand International Hotel. I had a bunch of fun imagining and then painting it, and I hope you all enjoy perusing it. ©2018 Jeff Lee Johnson

I love this picture, but I keep staring at it because I've seen most of the other stuff, but I can't for the life of me figure out why I'm so fixated on the bellboy. He seems, besides the woman with the cat, to be the most normal person there.

Incredible, almost overwhelming talent in this drawing! As a little old lady of an undisclosed age, I commend you on your talent and ability to tell much much more in a picture than I could have ever imagined, and I look forward to seeing your star rise even further. Thank you for a very entertaining painting!

What that fan is hooked up to?
Who has to clean out the phone booth?
Is right-hand-elevator guy regretting booking a room here?
Why does the bus-boy look normal? (Unless I'm missing something)
Why did shadow-man hang himself in an elevator of all places?

This and many more questions await at The Grand International Hotel!
P.S I spoted others, I just picked some for this.

Hey, I wanted to buy a higher res copy so I can get a print made, is there one available ? The DA points thing seems to be for a near empty zip file :(

Jeff is that a Jellyfish holding the Chandelier?
Also, how many different things to find in total?

Why is the mirror cracked?

I made up a vampire myth in my mind that once a mirror has been broken, it shows the vampire's reflection. Alternatively, it broke on her first trip down the right-hand elevator:)

Hey, who keeps a cat on a leash?
Seriously, this place will get an OSHA complication in the future...

Oh wow, so much deliciously disturbing details to discover in your well deserved Daily Deviation!
Especially the ones that hide in the shadows, like that gigantic spider and the creepy doll, I love it!
Thank you for sharing. skull emoticons love

I love this! The shadow of the hanging figure in the elevator is great. I love the details. I have to ask because I can't quite place it. Is that a design also on her wrist? Or is it just her veins? Thank you Love your work!
