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

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......

There's a lot of tentacles in this scene... I've seen enough hentai to know where this is going.

This is sick. Look like a boring place before you focus your eyes properly. I don't get that scull in the cup though - is it a foam drawing?.. If so, perhaps more fuzzy-looking and more chaotic - spirally scull with added contrast would be better. Or the same but as a steam - would give extra depth to the whole scene. Anyway, respect man, one of those 5% on deviant art, which is worth something.

Oh my God, if the cup wasn't enough then look at the knife of the woman. It's a pie but it looks identical to blood. The messages that are put into this, the subtle foreshadowing is so great.

Congratulations, such a fine peace of work.  It reminds me of hidden pictures within a photo, which as I get older I find myself increasingly drawn too.

It took me a moment to realize that the mother was pulling her son with a tentacle arm and that lead my eye around the whole artwork to find more creepy secrets lurking around. I also love the fact that the main character is looking at a normal situation in a diner and her creative mind turned it into inspiration for her writing. That's the interpretation I get from this piece. I hope that my interpretation was what you intended us to see. You made my art senses overload. Overall I love this piece and you now have another person watching you.

Love this piece of art, the tiny details that you discover little by little, the whole composition... everything. Also, is everything in the child's head hair? He seems to have something like coral of sorts
