Christopher West Updates His Website!!!!!

Ok, maybe that is a bit of a falsehood but I am hoping to give him a bit of a kick-start. Chris, I love your stuff and just need more! Anyone who wants/needs/begs for Chris West to update his site with more of his beautifully designed and executed maps, here is the place to start bribing.

Please Chris, Please, please, pleeeaaaassssee!

I wish to fully support this movement. I will even provide the link for those who have yet to see this tremendous, but a bit dated masterpiece. Don't try the obvious hisname.com site, that isn't even close. I seem to recall in a different thread that there were proprietary and time issues that prevented the updates, but bribery tends to get you everywhere.

I am wondering whether Chris has any prohibitions to posting his maps, given his contractual relationship with Paizo and WotC. I would assume not, as Paizo spoke recently on another thread about how it needs to get artist's permission to imclude and/or print art beyond the agreed upon format of the magazine.

If not, then I second that motion.

Andoran Cartographer

Oh my, how embarassing!

Yes, my website desperately needs an update, but it's going to be a while yet before I find time to do it. Before I can do things like that, I need to be caught up on all of my current projects, (ie: have all my work done and no projects needing my immediate attention) and it has been a long time since that has happened.

There is also the problem that others own the copyright on most of the work I do, so there's not much new stuff to put up there. I used to have an understanding with them that I could post my work in the magazine to my online portfolio a couple of months after the issue appears on newsstands, but it has been so long since I exercized that option that I'd hate to make assumptions and get in trouble. I'll need to check about that again.

Anyway, hopefully I can get to that soonish™. :)

Andoran

Fakey, you'se got my full support. I'm right behind ye'.

Well, I guess that means that you're in high demand, and that's a good thing. I add my voice to those who would like to see an update to your sight, though. Perhaps a blog, where you would write even just a sentence or two here and there regarding your current projects and how you are tackling them? That way you could get away from having to post maps, and we (the readers) would be inclined to checkout the projects upon their release (i.e. good advertising).

As I am familiar with your work and admire it I would also be curious to hear about your "process", and even the business side behind it...whatever you're willing to divulge.

Best of luck Christopher.

So, how about doing work for Pathfinder?


Congratulations! That's a slick website with some very lovely maps indeed. I love the Star Wars ships. I hope you have a good Gen Con.

Can't wait to see that 'tutorials' section once you've got it done. :D

I have been a fan of your work for a long time. I am glad to see your site being updated. Looking forward to more additions.

Here's hoping that you stay buzy for a long time.

Will have to check this out once I get home.....


Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. Um... I feel humbled to be in the presence of such an awesome cartographer.


Amazing stuff, Chris. I can't wait to see what's up for sale on the 17th! :)

I'm glad you guys liked what you saw at my site! It certainly was a long time in the making.

I'm hard at work on a larger set of terrain cards now, which can be laid out to form any number of different large starships (anything bigger than a starfighter could be constructed). Hopefully those will be done and printed within a month or two.

I've got another double-sided poster in the works as well; this time it features a swamp location on one side and a desert location on the other. Though they will likely be listed in the sci-fi section of my site, there won't be any technology featured on the posters. Therefore, Pathfinder and D&D players (even players of modern, horror, or superhero games) should be able to put them to use in an adventure. Those posters are mostly finished; they're just waiting for more of my first set to sell through in order to finance the next poster print run.

Beyond that, I have plans to release one or more decidedly fantasy-themed poster maps at next year's Gen Con, finances permitting.

In the meantime, I am working on two other fantasy map projects for different publishers. Nothing for Pathfinder, unfortunately, but Paizo knows I'm always happy to work with them.


Your work is always so awe inspiring.

I'm looking at the off world shipping centre and am really impressed by the structure in the middle of the left part of the map which is just slightly mis-aligned from the grid.

What so impressive about it is that it both gives the illusion that it was just dropped there since it does not line up with the grid but the misalignment is so slight that it'll work fine when used in the table top game. So great marriage of visual style with playability.

Andoran Cartographer

Thanks for noticing that, Jeremy. I was a little nervous about the misalignment of the freight car and the starship on the landing pad because I didn't know if the miniatures game players would find it problematic, but I decided that it was worth the risk to make the map feel more natural.

Thanks for the compliment! :)
