Hello, my name is Tommaso Di Giovanni, I live in Florence, Italy and I'm a freelancer cartographer and a humble illustrator. 
You can find some of my works on Portfoliobox, or also on my DeviantArt page.
I've always loved art and imagination, expecially when they walk together.
Luckily few years ago my girlfriend gave me a wacom tablet for my birthday, so I started drawing some maps for fun and eventually sold them. Then I started working on commissions and I have worked both with companies and private customers.
I've always liked the fantasy world, and I've played rpg (mostly Dungeons & Dragons) since childhood. Unfortunately I don't have much time to play lately, but I started anyway to build my own world where settle a possible campaign.
I've done a few maps of it and some friends from the Cartographer's Guild forum suggested me that it could be an interesting project. Sad news, making maps is not my first job, I work as educator in a centre for kids with disabilities and in my spare time I do maps commission, so I have little time to keep building my world.


I'm here to ask for your support!
like many artists everywhere, I really enjoy drawing but also you know, need to make a living like eveyone else..so I just manage everything trying to make the most of it, and hope even better with a little help from you guys!
By becoming a patron you will help me to spend time drawing awesome stuff and to take "Project Heimur" alive!

My goal is to show you the settings I've created for my D&D campaign, the world of Heimur,  through my hand drawn maps,  illustrations, supplements and adventures.

Because I will make awesome maps, full of details and little curiosities that will capture your imagination! You will discover the secrets of Heimur, among the green valleys and beneath the high mountains, trough the bare wilderness and yet into the great old cities. The story of this world is unique, and his future depends on you!
What is the best part of this?
  • You don't have to use a specific rpg system, I personally based this for my D&D 5ed campaign, but I won't tell you about rules or monster statistics, I will tell you about "the fearsome den of Syrilith, the cursed dragon", by showing you the meandering tunnels covered by blue lichens, the nests of his kobolds denizes, or the traps that protect his fabulous treasure.. you will feel the flavour of the environments I'm going to create!
  • You can choose to take inspiration from the whole project or even just small parts of it such as a single map or texts, depending on your preferences, and adapting it to your own campaign and story
  • You can be involved in the creative process, by suggesting your ideas, questions and proposals for every next map

Mostly I'm going to create and develop maps, each with additional introductory notes, besides several illustrations that comes with the story to portray scenes and landscapes
You'll see the world of Heimur taking shape in front of you, but remember that all concepts are modular and composable so you can easily keep only those settings that apply to your fantasy universe
As a start, I will produce 1 map each month but I planning to increase the frequency of new works' release


Hope you all will have fun, and thanks for your support!
Tom
