Call of Cthulhu the RPG and some new artistic goals / by Mathieu Vaillancourt

In early February with my girlfriend and my friends, I played the tabletop RPG Call of Cthulhu by Chaosium for the first time. A year to flip through this amazing book of rules, to look at the illustrations, to immerse myself in this macabre and unforgivable world. This was finally the moment I waited so much, playing this amazing game with people I care. I was not deceived and I spent many hours of pleasure, horror and laughter. It tooks one year to play because of some events in my life.

Rat of Misery

some personal problems surfaced but also other old ones settled. I have known for real poverty, lack of food, fatigue and black thoughts.

Having participated in the Lovecraftuary of 2018, I continued my series of the Cthulhu Mythos. Right now I am doing since the begining of February 2019 the same challenge and I must say that after this, I want to devote myself to something else.

I really love illustrating creatures but between two filthy horrors, I practice, and I will always practice, human anatomy.

After February 28, 2019, I will drop my pencil from the H.P. Lovecraft universe to devote myself to another subject that fascinates me and inspires me more and more everyday; old European tales. I intend to interpret them in my way and immortalize these beloved tales again. I will begin with some of the tales of Charles Perrault first and then the ones by the Grimm brothers. I also have plan to touch diverse mythologies.

I will not give up forever illustrating the Cthulhu's mythos. It is still inspire me, but I need artistic beauty for a few months or even years. Only the future will tell.

P.s. I can’t wait to play my next game of Call Of Cthulhu. This game is so cruel for players!
