I Make Maps and Map Accessories


As some of you may have noticed, a little while back I posted a preview for my next big project, Farther Than Pleiades. So, what is it, exactly? Well, for years now, I've wanted to create my own world. Not a fantasy world, mind, but a world where humans started over and created entirely new history, which I could then show through maps, writing, and more. Now, finally, I am ready to start.

This project will be a massive one, in addition to all the other work I'm doing. It will involve a large, detailed meta-story in addition to the story of the planet itself, and cover a vast range of topics from warfare through fashion and everything in between. In addition to maps and textbook-style writing, I even plan on writing multiple full-length novels set in various countries on the planet, supposedly translated from actual novels written there. 

So yeah, it's going to be quite a long project. I expect it take quite a few years, which I am fine with. It won't be perfect, but I hope I can make the whole thing interesting to you all, and maybe get people invested into the story of this whole world.

That's about it. I expect to be finished with the first write-up for the universe in a week, and will post the maps that come with it here on DA, and possibly the writing as well, though most of the stuff will be gathered together on a tumblr that I'll link to when it's up. For now, have some art for Farther Than Pleiades, including a rough draft of the very first map for the setting!

Occupation: College student, majoring in English Education
Tools of the trade: Inkscape
Loves: Alternate history and maps

Well, guess I should introduce myself. I'm Lynn, a college girl looking to be a teacher who has taken up her love for alternate history into the form of map-making, and occasionally dabbling in flag-making as well. Proud US patriot, and have recently gotten in touch with my strong German heritage, so I suppose I could be called a German patriot in exile.

Anyways, here for the maps and flags and other pretty pictures on the site, and hope to make some of my own and meet some cool people. :)
