Memorable Worlds embodied on Paper – Cartography by Basil, the Scribe

Hey! Yes, I’m talking to you! Would you like to find a hidden treasure? Because I have a map for you. And let me tell you a secret. Map is the treasure! Basil Jackson, aka Basil, the Scribean artist, and cartography & calligraphy enthusiast creates immersive maps using dip pens and watercolor. These extraordinary pieces of art often depict very well known worlds from popular books or video games. Maps that you might recognize immediately include worlds from Skyrim, Game of Thrones, Lord of The Rings. Being fantasy world, or the real one, these maps will captivate you while you explore them. Soaking in every tini detail.

My main source of inspiration for my current work would be the historical maps. In more general view – artists of all kind.

I tried lot of different techniques, different kinds of inks, pencils, paints and digital drawing. Dip pens and watercolour give the best feeling when drawing and the colours seem the most natural.

What do I have in store for the future?! More maps, that’s for sure! I hope to work on my drawing skills too and slowly introduce illustrations of characters drawn using same techniques.
