Even though left the sc4 gaming community more than two years ago, I definitely haven't gone latent; through the course of the latest two years, I experienced some of the greatest successes in my life yet, and I am still eager to produce more and more awesome stuff.
In late february 2012, my interest in sc4-related stuff gradually dropped, and I completely relocated todeviantart, as a specialist on photomanipulation and digital maps. In july 2013, I finished my greatest project yet; the World - Imperial Decorative, the largest and most detailed world map poster ever drawn. After it got quite a solid popularity(20,000 views in 2 days), I decided to pursue this hobby even more, and make it a foundation of my future career.
After I completed multiple designs and translation of all the political maps of the world, I started to work on a wide multitude of new projects, focusing mostly on detail and innovation. In late november 2013, I finishedMap of the Internet, project that skyrocketed me to worldwide fame.
In late January 2014, the Internet map got to the deviantart spotlight, and subsequently it was featured on vast multitude of international media, includingdailymail, the independent, fox news and much, much more. I gave about 15 interviews to the media all around the world during the first week of february, I also started selling prints on zazzle to get some money on the side; I earned about $10 000 on royalties through the first month.
Few weeks later, I also created my own website,www.halcyonmaps.com, you can find all my featured work there.
I also produced multiple other maps, including the Climate Change map and a bunch of historical posters.
After a few weeks, all my posters will be available on amazon.com, amazon.co.uk and all amazon european marketplaces, as high-quality 40-inch wide matte paper prints personally signed by myself. Price of all the prints will be around 37 dollars(46 dollars with expedited intercontinental shipping), large-scale 70-inch wide Imperial Decorative map posters will be available just for 80 dollars including shipping. After sufficient medial and online advertising, I think it could provide me a considerable sum of money every month.
Previously released major projects include:
-Map of the Internet 1.0(compendium of late-2013 internet)
-Map of the Internet 2.0(compendium of march-2014 internet)
-Political Map of the World-Imperial Decorative(up-to date, most detailed political map poster out there)
