Beautiful work by +Maxime Plasse
 
Fantasy maps!
I always love it when fantasy authors share the process by which their maps are created.

In the background, I’ve been working with artist Maxime Plasse on maps for The Song of the Shattered Sands. There’s been a lot of back and forth to get things from my very rough startin…

Gorgeousness. And work. A ton of work.
 
A private commission, done in a style emulating  some very early 18th century maps.

Sometimes city maps can be wonderfully regular - whilst ever block remains different.

I visited there about 2 years ago. The place is amazing, easy to navigate on foot, and well planned. They planned for extra wide streets, pedestrian areas, and limited building height so that everyone could get sun and clean air, which was very important at the time. So now it is an amazing pleasant urban area.

So, as amazing as it is in this shot, it's just as amazing on the ground.

A nice piece of research, and a great piece of simple data visualization.

FOUND: A Very Early and Very Rare Ottoman Atlas
In 1803, when the Cedid Atlas Tercumesi was printed in Istanbul, the city was still the capital of the Ottoman Empire. It was one of the first printed...

I love maps like this <3

Reminds me of some of the orbital maps I've messed with in CC3 Cosmographer (though this has got a lot more awesome going on)

A very different mapping style.

Here I've used more of an icon style for the mountains, and very stylised marks for the trees and the desert. In addition, I bumped up the physicality of the map, with creases, worn edges, and a bunch of grunge.
It’s always a little daunting to take on a brand new style of map. When Steve Russell asked for an map inspired by the Orient for Heroes of the Jade Oath I took it on with some trepidation. After a ton of experimenting with textures, brushes and line-styles I came up with a version I … Continue reading "Heroes of the Jade Oath"

Excellent story :)
 
I love stories like this :)
NPR and the Washington Post report a fascinating story of how a rare atlas was identified in an unlikely fashion: being posted to Reddit. Last month, reference librarian Anders Kvernberg stumbled across an uncatalogued atlas in the vaults of the National Library of Norway.

Introduction
I illustrated the official maps of the Lands of Ice and Fire for Game of Thrones as well as maps for BMW, Wizards of the Coast, Will Smith's After Earth, and many more.

I post tips and tricks on how to create your own maps, here's a collection of some of the tips I've posted. I got into map making through RPGs, and I run a store of maps that you can buy for use in your own games. To see more of my work, check out my site.
