Frank Johnson, john jennings

I saw this amazing illustration of a mysterious looking  character done by the incredibly talented John Jennings. John told me this was an image of a character he created named Frank Johnson. Frank is featured in a story called Blue Hand Mojo which will be coming out next year from Rosarium Publishing, be on the lookout for that!!
