(Part I (personal projects) may be found here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... )

This list is in rough reverse chronological order.

Quote:
Here is a look at the real-life, bona fide, actual mapmaking projects I've been able to be involved in so far. A huge thanks goes out to Adam Starkweather, Mark Simonitch, Neil Randall, Richard Berg, Brian Youse, Ken Dingley, Jerry Taylor, and Gene Billingsley for thinking highly enough of my work to offer me the chance to work on these! Been loving it, and can't wait to see what I'll get to make next...

Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoy making them!

A high-contrast map for the Russian Civil War (the counters are full white and bright red, so pop beautifully...)

This one's had a mixed reception, but it's one of my favorites, plays beautifully.

The first four of twenty-one maps planned for decisive battles in history. The challenge here is creating an integrated look that still has period character for each campaign...
