Grab your magnifying glasses detectives because boy do we have a case for you.  Four of them, to be exact.

Jeff Lee Johnson grew up in rural Minnesota, in a house filled with books by authors like Edgar Rice Burroughs, Kenneth Robeson, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and Arthur C. Clark. Since his mom would draw and paint, she provided him with an endless supply of materials, tools, and patient instruction so that he could portray his imagination, fueled by their stories.

Jeff now splits his energy between personal projects that he has long wanted to pursue and art directing for Fantasy Flight Games. The man still relishes the opportunity to create scary images — his favorite characters like their jobs, and, according to him, that makes them a bit admirable and sympathetic. 

When you look at the artist’s illustrations, every little detail matters. Jeff fills the frame with so much detail, it’s hard to walk away from his works. It looks like there’s always something else to discover.
