I'm your man if you need a fantastic map.
My name is Robert Altbauer and I'm a freelance cartographer and illustrator living in Salzburg, Austria. I'm a life long addict to science fiction, fantasy and alternate history, and became a cartographer some time ago, when I more or less rediscovered the fun of drawing - something I had done as a child and teenager, but nearly forgot during my school and university years.
I have created numerous maps for roleplaying game publishers and developers, PC and browser game companies, app developers, writers, RPG players and people who simply like to decorate their room with a fancy map. My work can also be seen in several successful Kickstarter projects.
Where has my work been featured?
WWW and TV
- The Middle East TV series 'Omar', aired on MBC, features in the opening credits a map which I made and was then turned into a 3D work by the digital artist of the TV show.
