I've always been a fan of a well drawn map, whether a fantasy novel or one you would find in a National Geographic. Just happened to 'trip' over this
site a couple of weeks ago looking for....don't even really remember what I was looking for anymore.

I've been blown away by the artistic caliber, friendliness and willingness to help budding cartographers, that I find myself wanting to create my own map.

As it turns out, I have access to Adobe CS4 and a Wacom tablet (stars must be aligning), so once I finishing digging my way through the tutorial sections
I hope to at least 'dabble' here pretty soon on a map and see where it goes.
