A macabre fascination of the Internet age is the details that killers leave online about their lives. Can you imagine what Jeffrey Dahmer would have said in his OK Cupid profile? Well, The New York Post has found a web site of artwork supposedly belonging to Jeffrey Johnson, the Upper East Side man who shot his former manager dead outside the Empire State on Friday morning. And it looks like someone had a thing for busty pirate wenches.
StJollysArt.com, the web site supposedly belonging to Johnson, who was shot dead by police after murdering Steve Ercolino on 33rd Street, is filled with comic book-style drawings. One section called Seafaring Vignettes shows intricate drawings of ships, including one of a naked woman’s rear end floating atop the water near a ship that’s been drawn in such a way to suggest Johnson could have used a class on scale. Another drawing shows a buxom blonde in a tightfitting pirate uniform. The weirdest ones — under the section "Alternate Realities" show fighter jets, ships, and a nude woman all in the same frame. Johnson’s other drawings on St. Jolly’s Art are classic cars, like the Chevy, Ferrarri and COBRA, and airplanes. There’s also a whole section called "Lisa’s Paintings" of landscapes and waves. (It’s unclear who "Lisa" is.) Printouts of the images on his web site are for sale.
Was Jeffrey Johnson a talented artist? Yes, well enough. But it’s also not too hard to imagine why a 58-year-old man doodlings pictures of pirate wenches might have had some screws loose.
