About Melrose Maps

Hello and Welcome to Melrose Maps!

My name is Melissa Beth Rose, and I am a fantasy map cartographer. I love bringing worlds to life. I view my maps as a collaboration with you. I create a starting point, an inspiration, a framework, a prompt, but you get to fill in the rest. Together, we create a new world, and a story unfolds. 

As a cartographer, I have three main goals when I approach a map:
1) I want my maps to tell a story. I design them to have natural and unnatural barriers, places for encounters and conflict. I ask the questions: how does the land shape the people, and how do the people shape the land?  I relish making maps that evoke a past and are full of potential.
2) I design them to be beautiful, I want my maps to be dynamic and engaging. I have decades of professional art and illustration experience that I bring to the table. I particularly enjoy pushing the boundaries between map and illustration.
3) I make them look old. Inspired by Tolkien, I love making maps that look like they are from an older time, when the edges are rough, and the pages are travel stained. 
I want my maps to be an inspiration for DMs, GMs, players, and authors alike, and that we will create fantastic words together!

Your support allows me to spend more time making maps, and helps me achieve my goal of supporting myself as a full time artist. As a working mom, the time I get to create is limited, but with your help I can get a little closer to that goal.

Your support means the world to me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Goals
$22 of $50 per month
I'll add a digital growing map tier. 
Essentially, over the next year you will get one map a month, for a total of 12 maps that year that can be assembled into one larger whole map.
After that year, a new growing map will be created.
