I'm a self-employed guy in Sweden and work mostly with a content-management system I've built myself in PHP named Atlas. This is my main source of income with customers hosting their web sites in my system.

Apart from that, I enjoy photography, design, painting, drawing and playing games. I am here because I am working on a Myst Book Project where I try to create a old-looking book written and illustrated as if I was experiencing the game first person. The Myst series of games have a tendency to spawn a multitude of notes, maps, sketches and such, so this was a natural step. In these books, I create maps of each "Age" as it is called. I am here to seek advice on how to further my technique and make better maps.

You can see the Myst Book Project here: http://sandman.net/myst and my homepage is otherwise here: http://sandman.net, but it's mainly in Swedish.

I apologize for not introducing myself earlier - I'm not a heavy forum user, so you'll have to forgive me :)

Forgiven and welcome! I have a sneaking feeling that you're going to be a huge contributor to the site!

Thanks a lot! I think being here will keep the motivation up to continue. We all need feedback, but some of us have too little time for doing this so we need all the pep talk we can get :-D

Ah, the pressure, the pressure!! :)

I made a double post? Oops. I got a internal server error earlier, maybe that's what went wrong :)

Is your CMS optimized for hosting artist galleries/portfolios?

That is something I have been looking for. Right now I use GetSimple CMS with a few custom php modules I wrote (cartocopia in my sig block) but I'm always looking for something better/stronger/faster/easier.
