Hi all

My name's Todd, from Newcastle, Australia.

I've always had an interest in old style maps, architectural plans, etc. Recently, I uncovered the beginnings of a map that I'd drawn for who knows what reason, and it sorta pushed me back in this direction. That led me to this site, and I hope that I can put some of what I've discovered here to use.

I'm also an amateur photo-retoucher so I have a good working knowledge of Photoshop and it's tools. I'm still discovering new tricks though. I also, unfortunately, lack access to a drawing tablet - which I have recently discovered makes drawing rivers a pain in the neck. My mouse just doesn't quite work how I want it to.

Anyway, it's good to be here. Looking forward to participating in the community.
