So right off the bat... I am still alive and you can still buy maps. We're down to a couple dozen strip club maps left but there are still plenty of Atlantis maps.
Now time for excuses... my day job became entirely too oppressive between 2012 and 2014. I ended up working 12 hours days and weekends. No time for me... no time for my family... no time for maps. But that has changed as I recently started a new job with traditional hours and ample free time.
I also bought a new computer which can handle the conversion of a 24 x 36 200 DPI multi-layered image into a .pdf to send to the printer.
I have also been toying with a few different sales models and have a journal of sketches that need to be mapped out. Plus now that Facebook is the strongest way to reach new gamers. The only online community that doesn't allow talk of maps other than its own isn't the only way of reaching new gamers.
Over the next few weeks, I will be getting used to Windows 8 and getting ready to send a new map to the printers.
The hope is to be viable again by the summer.
Until then, let's figure what this doodle will look like and check out the next post.
