John Stevenson

I am a freelance illustrator and designer dealing in cartography, architecture and a whole variety of subjects generally in the fantasy sphere. I do graphic design and lettering as well.

I am available for commissioned work and for hire. I quote based on the job presented to me. If you are interested in working together you can contact me here on DA via Note or via email at

My map work can be seen at…
I also have a Red Bubble shop at…
Just realized I hadn't done a feature in 6 months or so. Bad deviant.
So this will just be some stuff I've enjoyed over the last months.
I did some Middle Earth maps and stuff over the last few weeks and thought I'd throw those in there as well. Cheers.

And if you play Improbable Island you might enjoy this as well. It was commissioned by :iconcatkinsvedka:.

Right off I'd like to thank Anne :iconpica-ae: for the DD for Yuletide. That was great for Christmas. :D
2014 is closing up and making way for the new year. I got a lot done in 2014. Probably my most productive year.
I've improved a lot and met a bunch of great people. 2015 may be even more productive. Happy New Year to all. :icongrin--plz:

One of my favorite pieces from 2014. This is just gorgeous. Go check it out. :)

These maps you make, you have created your own world?
SirInkman Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015  Professional
Hey Prismatic,
some are paid commissioned maps but most are from a story world I created.
I have 3 or 4 story or game worlds that I'm working on.
The most developed at the moment is Luma. Many of the building drawings are also from the world of Luma as well.
Prismatic-Memories Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015
I see I see, sounds interesting. Have you written anything about Luma? Or so far just illustrations?
SirInkman Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2015  Professional
Yeah, I have a bunch of language stuff, historical background info about the general areas as well as specific location history as it relates to some towns and such.
And of course the whole thing started with the story of Luthien Crabnuckel; delver, seeker, traveler. His story was intended to introduce a character that would be able to tell many other stories I had written over the years.

It wasn't supposed to be this involved. Just some background so people would know who he was when he began telling other stories but of course it grew and evolved into a much larger story. :D
