About the Artist

About Me

My name is Tiffany Munro and I am a Canadian digital artist. I hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and can be most often found indoors. Winter is always coming. I take commission work to create your custom world. Digital cartography and art map work, concept work, and finally, color work and world building consultancy. I am happy to make stuff up for you.

I’ve been designing maps for fantasy novels, board games, digital game media, and film since 2013. My interest in fantastic cartography began as a teenager in books such as Lord of the Rings. This continued on into my adulthood, and so I made my interest in this niche art into my career.

How Did I Start Drawing Maps

How did I really start? Well, in November 2006 I drew this map.

The first fantasy map ever drawn by Tiffany Munro, at the age of 16, for my second Nanowrimo novel. Don’t feel so bad about your sketch now, do you? (And of course now I professionally draw fantasy maps for your novels, games, campaigns, and movies! Everyone starts somewhere.)

Later I moved on to selling maps on Fiverr, and then Upwork, and finally from my own website. I also sell assets on Roll20. I was the first person to sell fantasy maps on Fiverr and accidentally ended up doing so many that no one realizes I can do other forms of art now, and I have no recent examples of other art. D: Really, I can draw more than just maps. Consider hiring me for concept art as well!

Hiring me comes with the bonus of adding more LGBTQ+ness to your team. Therefore adding diversity to your crew!

I specialize in worldbuilding. I design Tolkien-style maps, Game of Thrones style maps, Skyrim… so on and so forth. But let’s not make this map keyword stew. You clicked on this to learn more about ME.

My housemates include Janell, who is the other writer behind the Almaera and Carmen map settings. We share our brains to craft that co-creative world. Also, two cats adopted in Feb 2020. One is a tiny white lady who looks like an alien and is suitably named Princess Leia, adopted at 10. The other is a chonky fluff, enormous, tall, gray with black whiskers and huge earnest eyes adopted at the age of 3. My former housemate was a long tuxy cat and I used to share sushi with him, I loved him so much. RIP Duncan, my little buddy (Feb 2020; adopted in Jan 2015 at 9.5 years old). I garden, play piano, sleep in a hammock (sometimes joined by the cat), and attend an Anglican church. I consider myself “spiritual”. For entertainment, you will not be surprised to discover I enjoy consuming the very style of media I create.

Battle Map Assets of my Cats

This is Duncan, my beloved now deceased cat, on the last day of his life. I have turned him into a photographic map element for any map photobashers who would like to include him. This is a free stock item which you can use in any appropriate map free of charge and credit. Keep my cat alive in the multiverse and send him on adventures and into sunbeams in Valhalla.

Harry the Cat, the youngest of the bunch. He loves running around outside in the back yard when I let him, and scaring squirrels whenever possible. Brushing is his favorite indoor activity, which is a relief, because he has a lot of hair.

Princess Leia, the majestic demander of your attention, will camp on your belly or lap forever. She is a lap cat and loves food. I do not think she can catch a mouse.
