    Post Hey there!

    Hello all!
    I've posted here a few times in the past, but I don't think I've ever properly introduced myself.

    I'm a freelance cartographer and illustrator mainly providing art and maps to WOTC for various D&D properties. My most recently released projects have been a series of illustrations for P1 King of the Trollhaunt Warrens and numerous maps for the new Scales of War Adventure Path.

    I look forward to posting more and becoming a part of the Cartographers Guild community rather than just a lurker.

    Welcome!

    I hope you don;t mind those of here making BATTLEMAP sized maps based off your work for miniature use while playing Keep on the Shadow Fell, Thunderspire Labyrinth, Pyramid of Shadows and the upcoming King of the Trollhaunt Warrens.

    I don't mind at all as long as they aren't being used commercially. WOTC may have more to say, but as far as I know, it's fine.

    Nope, I have made a bunch for Miniature Use, label every one: Based on original map by Mike Schley, and provide them here, free of charge.

    Actually no.

    I use a painterly style for illustrations unless they are part of a map. If I'm adding a vignette to a map though, I'll ink and paint it in a style similar to my mapping style.
