    Default Great blog post on illustration

    Definitely worth a read - and absolutely applies to freelance mapmaking too:

    That last bit is probably the easiest...draw awesome stuff and put it on the net.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    This is interesting.
    "Don't trash-talk yourself" is good advice. It's something I tend to do >_<

    It probably applies to everything you want to do.

    Great link Torstan, thanks for sharing it.

    "Don't limit your influences"...I can't tell you how many times I get inspired by doing something I wasn't planning and then I can't wait to grab my sketchbook or my computer.
    I was doing my day job and walked past some moss growing in the gravel and had to take a picture because it was just so cool. I don't know how yet but I just know I'm going to use it for something.....unfortunately, I don't have a data plan on my phone so I don't know how to get the shot into my PC.
