Hi all, I'm Bookdust, I'm 24 and I've been drawing worlds in notebooks and sketchpads off and on for as long as I can remember. I'm a bit of a worldbuilder/writer so visualizing the places I was coming up with in my head really helped with the brainstorming. I've also become a player of Tabletop Roleplaying recently, so map making has become all the more useful to me.

Anyways I'm currently planning an RPG campaign and was looking around on Gnome Stew for some GMing tips when I found Tom Puketza's article on Petri Dish Sandboxes (http://www.gnomestew.com/gming-advice/building-a-petri-dish-sandbox), in which he linked to this fine looking site (really digging the brown), I'm hoping that I'm able to learn some thing from you talented folks to further my own cartography skills and maybe show off some of my meager chops.
