    Not a map, but an illustration of a Mujina - Japanese Badger Shape-changer. I needed one for my upcoming publication, but I didn't want to pay an artist to do it, so here's one I did for myself, last night.

    Enjoy!

    Just like the last post, but this is a kitsune, the wife of the Mujina above and the spiritual leader of the village of Kitsumura. She is wearing the garb of a Miko shrine maiden. Enjoy!

    Haven't posted any new maps lately, though I'm working on a bunch - all mostly protected by non-disclosure agreements, so I can't show them.

    However, as a piece of interesting side news. I've just been contacted by the president/owner of RPGNet - a large and fairly long established online community of Roleplaying Gamers, to create several maps as an experiment using the new Apple IPAD.

    So I'm working the cutting edge of cartographic development. Plus the site owner contacted me "out of the blue". I've never been to the site and haven't targetted them with my work. They went online and found me... kind a cool.

    If I get any maps completed and permission to post them, I will certainly do so. Just showing I haven't disappeared altogether - just hip deep work is all.

    Sorry, got busier than I thought, so I haven't posted lately.

    Got some interesting news, I don't yet know the gallery or date, but one of my fellow Cartographers' Guild website members is organizing an Art Gallery showing of maps of the Cartographers' Guild and six to eight of my maps will be featured in the show, in a New York City gallery!

    Its a "digital art gallery" having a dozen or so large flat panel screens with digital feeds of images, rotated every minute. The gallery features in-house gicle canvas art printing with profit share with artist, but otherwise the effect as a traditional art gallery with a showroon in NYC.

    I've been asked to submit 6 to 8 of my maps - so that's kind of cool! If never had my art shown in any art gallery, especially one in NYC - even if its a "digital" art gallery (interesting concept.)

    When I find out more of the name of the Gallery and date of showing I will update the thread.

    Edit: here's a couple maps more purely Xara with some 3D mixed in recent works, than my more hand-drawn style...

    Its still in the early development stages, I have created the initial map for the project and have had to make certainly alterations to accomodate some nuances discovered while the development team works on the application for the iPad. When I learn more, I'll say it here, but then I'm just the cartographer and not the programmer, so the developers might not tell me all as I'd like to know. But I'll you guys updated.

    Thanks for the comments on my work - I really love doing it.
