Jeff had illustrated the image for Fantasy Flight Games, Tales of Adventure and Madness, and The Investigators of Arkham Horror rulebook. For its newest, the artist features scenes, including a skull emerging from a coffee cup and a blind person enjoying a morning newspaper. Brace up as a focus on the compiled below will bring forth some kinds of crazy stuff happening all around. There’s something else to discover, hence look closely and don’t freak out. 

The Grand International Hotel.

Blue Plate Special.

As seen on Jeff’s website, his art is categorized thematically, focusing on horror, fantasy, and sci-fi. And it turned out Jeff’s mom, an avid reader of science fiction, horror and fantasy, passed on her interest. Growing up, Jeff reportedly spends most of his time in his mom’s books or watch old movies. Due to this, he gained an insight into a wide variety of personalities and situations. The switch from one genre to another in his art isn’t much harder when compared with switching channels on the TV.

Rue The Day.

Under The Boardwalk.

These particular illustrations (featured in this article) were born out of Jeff’s admiration of H.P Lovecraft and his undying love of travel. But he created them to look totally normal at first glance but then quickly transform into something sinister. The characters that inhabit these illustrations appear more than supernatural forces, although each pic has a bit of everything. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
