I came across Deven's cartography class a while back as a way to get into using Copic markers and having fun making maps for my Dungeons and Dragons campaigns. What I got though, was a thorough education on art theory as well as geography,  and a love for creativity that I can now share with my kids. We've made treasure maps, campaign maps, and even have been inspired to just draw more in general. I'm so grateful for the thoughtful instruction, attention to detail, and well presented material that has inspired me to be more creative in life, and not just to create nice maps for our RPGs. Thanks Deven!

I can't art. At all. I have no artistic talent, and I don't have the patience to learn. I consider Deven a dear friend, and she encouraged me to take her course. I politely refused a few times, but I finally decided to try it. I didn't magically get the ability to draw beautiful maps, but I what I did get was the incredible ability to believe that some day I can. My maps went from rough line drawings to something actually discernible and useful. They make sense, and make my world feel a little more alive. I've watched the course a few times, and every time I get a little more from it, and a little better at drawing my maps. Deven's course gave me the confidence to know I can, and knowledge to know how to improve. It's as simple as that.

I learned about Deven from the map she did for Amaurea's Dawn, and then discovered the cartography course on her website. I quickly became a supporter so that I could take the class. It was very informative, and easy to follow along. I enjoyed the additional information that helped give better perspectives to what you would draw on a map. The first map I ended up drawing using what I learned was picked up by a publisher I had helped playtest a campaign for. There was a large scale map for an area, and I was inspired and drew it out. They decided to use it for their campaign setting (not yet published). The tips and advice really helped me hone in the perspective on that map and get a lot of the elements that I would have struggled with before.
