Born in 1971, François "Goomi" Launet originally discovered H. P. Lovecraft through role-playing games, and soon became addicted to this universe. He decided to study art to create dark atmospheres and creepy figures.
After classical studies, François started working with computer imagery, and currently works as a special effects supervisor and 3D artist for a movie and commercial company in Paris. He's also a freelance illustrator for various projects, including dark role-playing illustrations (Call of Cthulhu, Wraith, and Kult), websites, and CD covers.
Working all day with computers, he most often turns back to more classical mediums to express himself, although he has a never-ending quest for mixing paintings, drawings, typographic, and digital imagery.
Launet also writes the humorous Cthulhu-based webcomic, "UNSPEAKABLE VAULT (of Doom)".
