What other hobbies do you have?
I am curious to know what hobbies surround all of you cartographers!
As for me, my most predictable hobby is collecting D&D materials (maps baby). I don't play, but I have an extensive collection of pre-1985 stuff including most everything published by the judges guild, everything published for the greyhawk setting (including some pieces owned by the TSR employees), and every world setting produced by TSR (and a few by WoTC). It is not something I get to show off often!
My other hobbies are:
Book (fantasy and SF) collecting (first edition hardbacks).
Coin collecting (my biggest time suck after maps).
An occassional CRPG
And chasing my kids around (they win out even over maps:P)
So, what do you guys do when not making maps?
Hobbies? What's that - I work to death...
Sure I have hobbies, but when to "play with hobbies" is very rare these days.
I run a full-time digital graphics shop with too much work and no other employees - I do my best to not work the daytime job after 5 pm, but sometimes that's impossible.
I am working from 7pm to midnight everyday working on the website and marketing, as well as designing maps and products for Gamer Printshop - I've been doing that for nearly 4 months straight (so no hobbies for 4 months!)
I have a weekend gaming session, currently a player and not a DM, but the campaign sucks and we're starting to look at what to play instead...
I love creating maps, creating 3D models for maps and other uses. I love to create 3D comics when I have the time - not for over a year. I am an insatiable reader - SciFi, fantasy, RPG manuals, history, theology, mythology, etymology (I love languages), science... I write poetry (not in years), short stories and story development.
But all that's in the past, at least until I can get Gamer Printshop to take-over my daytime job and do that full time. Then maybe I could get to my hobbies. :D
I play with my German Shepherd, Suiko (unmarried, so this is my "kid")
