Cartographer's Annual 2014

The Cartographer's Annual 2014

Cloister Island - Competition Winning Entry

April ’14

In January ProFantasy ran a map-making competition open to any fantasy cartographer's (amateur or professional) out there. The theme was doing a volcanic island. The winner - as judged by Mike Schley from a great number of very nice submissions - was Christian Stiehl who graciously allowed us to turn his artwork into a Cartographer's Annual issue.

Christian's beautiful overland style is well-suited to creating regional maps of forests and rolling mountains. We hope you find it as gorgeous as we do!
