Today we're talking about mapmaking - and how to make a map which fits your world perfectly! My guest today is the incredible illustrator, cartographer and author, Isaac Stewart!
Isaac worked over a decade in the animation, video game, and book design industries. Then he became the art director for Dragonsteel Entertainment, the company of Worldbuilding Wizard Brandon Sanderson. He is responsible for the maps, illustrations and scripts inside The Way of Kings and the Mistborn series. In addition to his work at Dragonsteel, Isaac has created maps and symbols for some of the world’s most-renowned fantasy authors, including Tad Williams. He also writes his own books, and works as a freelancer creating maps and designing book covers for others! Isaac lives in Utah with his wife, children, and a couple of cats.
