Francois Vaillancourt

Freelance illustrator specializing in horror illustration and cover art

Francois is a Montreal artist who specializes in images illustrating dark worlds and stories where horror and the macabre meet. His images are characterized by a highly textured, emotionally evocative, and sensitive universe. Even through his darkest images, we can recognize a certain beauty and fragility. Although Francois is trained as a classical artist, his work and creative methods have been transposed into the digital world, allowing him to rework his images in a more fluid way until the desired result is achieved.
