There’s not much I can tell you about Jeffrey Knight Potter. Aside from his art, he doesn’t seem to have much of a presence on the web, or for that matter, in print. He has no entries in any f the various science fiction, fantasy and horror encyclopedias I’ve checked; he has no facebook page; googling for his name, in what every form you choose brings up no personal details, and that’s after you’ve managed to sort out the five gazillion J.K. Rowling/Harry POTTER hits. Even his own website, jkpotter.com, provides nothing in the way of birth date, state of residence or favorite pet’s name.
Since Mr. Potter apparently wishes to let his art speak for him, I’ll do the same, except to point out that he is one of the most original, influential and disturbing fantasy artists of all time. His book and magazine illustrations dominated the Lovecraftian field for a long time, but his most disturbing images are his personal work. Originally he worked with traditional photo techniques, though he later switched to Photoshop. There are at least two book collections of his work, Horripilations and Neurotica, both of which are still available.
