The Ghosts and Strangers of J.K. Potter

Artist J.K. Potter has been working his magic in the world of the dark and surreal for over 20 years. He was creating Steampunk imagery long before the current craze. Nobody designs a haunted building or ghostly apparitions quite like he does.

Here is a gallery of his strange imaginings.
