View Full Version : Maps by Jared Blando....

Jared Blando is an illustrator and cartographer whose work can be found at www.theredepic.com. Not only are his maps crisp, eye catching, and sharply drawn (check out his map for the City of Bridges), but its obvious from some of them that he is a gamer as well.

Wow--these are brilliantly illustrated maps. The exact style I enjoy most!

Great find!

thank you for featuring me on this site, i had no idea there was such a thing! But all the same, its an honor to be held in such high regard by my peers...and yes sometimes i do occasionally game, but not often enough. Please check my site for updates when you can get a chance, and if anyone needs maps done for them, please let me know.

Mr. Blando,

Its always great to see an industry professional pop up on the board. Best of luck to you and I'll make sure to visit your site from time to time. Pointers on how you create your maps are always appreciated (not asking for trade secrets now ;), but basic techniques, similar to what Butch Curry of Zombie Nirvana has been doing with his podcasts).

Thanks again for the comments.

I will ask if i can post my professional work i'm doing for Trident Games on here, for that is where alot of my new maps are going to.

I think you guys would like them, though i'm not promising anything on if i can pos them or not.

Dooooo it, do it now! :)

PS: be sure to ask Arcana for your "Industry Pro" status--you deserve it!

Yes Welcome. I love looking at other maps and trying to emulate them.
