Francois Launet

Born in 1971, I originally discovered H. P. Lovecraft through role-playing games and soon became addicted to his universe. I decided to study art to create dark atmospheres and creepy figures.

After classical studies, I started working with computer imagery, and I currently work as a special effects supervisor and 3D artist for a movie and commercial company in Paris. I’m also a freelance illustrator for various projects including dark role-playing illustrations (such as Call of Cthulhu, Wraith, and Kult), web sites, and cd covers.

Working all day with computers, I most often turn back to more classical mediums to express myself, although I have a never-ending quest for mixing paintings, drawings, typographic, and digital imagery.

    I run a music project, and your pictures would fit great for our sonic atmospheres. Wow!

    I think out of many, you grasp the best concept of the Cthulhu Mythos, which is the Unknown. Tentacles, pseudopods, and claws are nice, but that art of Nyarlsthotep and Shub-Niggurut give me chills, not because of what they look like, but what’s missing.

    Great work!
