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

Deviantart sells them in a variety of sizes and paper types. The 'Buy a Print" button should be in the upper right corner of this page if you are a Deviantart member.

Very cool picture - finding the hidden details was fun, and I like the way the ceiling seems to twist away from the floor subtly, implying non-Euclidean geometry.

There are many things that catch the eye but the first that snagged my attention was the fountain pen! I'm very glad to see it! On a second, more studied look, there are a *lot* of tentacles all around this picture and some very suspicious dishes being served. Everything looks normal at first glance and then the horror elements pop out! Nicely done

This a truly wonderful piece! With every thing i looked at i found something more and more disturbing, which in turn ensued into anxiety. Not many pieces are able to achieve that sense of dread in a single artwork, and I applaud you!

I like narrative approach of this digital artwork. Different stories are communicated through the visuals in one scene. It plays against people's expectations by having to take a closer look at things. To me, it looks like the Twilight Zone version of an Edward Hopper painting. You did a great job.

The very first thing that caught my ettention was the blind guy reading a newspaper. That made me realize nothing was quite right and I studied the picture in more detail. It's absolutely stunning and you did a superb job!

Let's see; bowler-hat guy has gills, eating an eyeball on his plate, some smeared some ketchup on the door's glass behind him, mother in brown coat appears to to have misplaced her hand with a cephelapods, waitress seems to be cutting into a VERY gooey cherry pie, there *might* be an eldritch horror hiding under the table behind her, the third-furthest man at the dining counter appears to be suffering from Illithid-idis, and his tentacle is flopped out for all to see. For shame, good sir!

Oh yeah, and the lady's coffee is trying to tell her something important......
