Even though I am more of a writer than a visual artist, I take great pleasure in mapping. I think maps are one of the most important things for immersion in a fantasy book.

I am open for commissions, you can send me a note for the prices if you are interested. Please send me an idea of the map you desire :

- Map kind (World, continent, region, etc.)
- Black and white or color
- Level of detail
- Dimensions
- Personnal / commercial


The Stones of Melenor
This was my entry for the July/Aug '18 challenge of the Cartographers' Guild, "Opposing seasons". I am very happy that it made me win my first Silver Compass.

"Once a year, when the time has come, the Stones start to shimmer in their usual bright blue light. 
All around them, the grass slowly frosts, and the petals of the small yellow flowers ice up and become as white as swan's wings. 
Then, gusts of wind bring snow whirlwinds from the sky and spread them all over the Lands of Melenor. 
The spirit of the old mage never liked autumn and spring, so he decided to change seasons his own way."
World of Oasis [commission]
Hey everyone!

Here is a map I had a lot of fun to draw, since I had to play a game to do it!
segacarts Approached me and asked me to draw the map of a Sega GameGear game, Defenders of Oasis (1992), that he was remastering on the Sega Genesis. However, the only tips I had to draw the map was the small game instructions pdf, the one and only walkthrough on the internet AND the game itself!
So yeah, I played the game on an emulator I downloaded, and had a word document open as I played to note every (very rare) clue about the world and how it was formed. However, I liked the fact that I still had a lot of liberty as for the general shape and landscape.
The game is set in a middle-eastern world, so there is not much vegetation (which I regret a little, because it looks a bit blank to me). 
Feel free to leave any comment of critic, that makes my work better each time!
