I am a PhD student (studying philosophy) who dabbles in artwork and the occasional art commission in his spare time. My primary art interests have been in fantasy map making, though I intend to branch out into illustration as time allows. If you are interested in commissioning a piece from me feel free to send me a PM at arsheesh2@gmail.com.

Cheers,
-Tad Davis (aka Arsheesh)

Azarith
This was a private commission I completed late last year.  My client, Mr. Kyle Lynch, requested the map be done in a photo-realistic style similar to some of my earlier pieces (some years back I wrote a tutorial on how to create maps in this style which can be found here: arsphantasia.wordpress.com/201…). This map was created using GIMP, Wilbur and Inkscape.  Hope you enjoy.  Cheers, Tad.

Rainbow Lake Commission
This is a piece I recently finished for a friend and client that is intended as a Christmas gift for his parents.  The map depicts the family lake house in Alaska.  I was going for a sort of cross between a cartoon and a medieval storybook type style.  This map was done completely in Krita.  Comments and critiques are welcome.  Thanks.

I'm already a cartographile (is that even a word?) topophile?  ...map lover... so looking at your work is already mesmerizing.  But what I find delightful is that you vary your styles.  You don't just make one kind of map.  Each has a different feel and character apart from being different geographies.  And thus the presentation of each map hints at the underlying culture or character of the worlds you present.  Bravo.  Keep up the good work!  :D :earth:

I favor cartographile myself, and I know what you mean, I'm right there with you.  And thanks for taking the time to let me know how you feel about my work, I'm very pleased to here it.  I do try to vary the type and style of my maps so that I can keep learning knew things.

Cheers,
-Tad
