World of the Marshlanders: a map commission

This post is Part 1 of a series to augment the Fictional Cartography by D.N.Frost available for free download.

This and other map commissions are gathered in my Portfolio Directory for you to explore.

This post is also Part 1 of a series about Annis Pratt.

I first encountered professor-gone-author Annis Pratt when a previous map client recommended my services for Annis's series of published novels. Annis writes eco-fiction, promoting a sustainable and ecologically-friendly paradigm through the adventures of the Marshlanders in her invented world.

I said hello and clicked eagerly around her website, absorbing a cool sense of the world Annis had created. Then I invited her to connect with me for a map estimate when the time was right.

After a few months, Annis was ready to tackle her map, and I was thrilled when she contacted me to get started.

Annis provided me with a few pencil sketches of her world, and I started on a commission estimate for the entire map.

We discussed her map needs and budget to finalize our map plan, and I created her initial render.

I sent the mock-up to Annis for consideration, and she decided to commission the project.

Here's what she had to say about the finished map:

Bravo! It looks terrific.

I sense you have put extra work into this marvelous map.

I am impressed with your business procedures and art work.

I appreciate your thoroughness.

This is going to work well with a submission I'm just doing.

Thanks for everything. Terrific!
