Tonight's project was updating the Commercial Maps Archive - now up to a mere FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE free commercially-licensed maps!

@megueyb When I added the commercial map releases as a Patreon goal, I never suspected we'd be here some 8 years later.

@darjr @megueyb

Yeah, I launched my Patreon in 2013... and surpassed all my initial goals BEFORE the official launch (when I posted the link to friends only to get feedback on the campaign).

I added the commercial release target at some point in 2014.

@megueyb Some are weaker than others, and when I look back I can tell when I was in rougher places in my life (like the first month or so after my breakup at the beginning of 2021) but overall I'm more than happy with the collection.

@dysonlogos This is always mind boggling. Thank you for your generosity.

@dysonlogos That really is incredible. Why do you do it?

I bought a couple of masks featuring your designs for the pandemic. I really thought someone would have recognised them by now but sadly not.


Why do I collect them on one archive page? Because otherwise you have to hunt through 8 years of maps on the blog to find them and see if they are commercially licensed or not.

Why do I release them under a free license? Because my amazing patrons pay for these maps and releases.

@dysonlogos You're a true hero in this industry. I use your maps all the time.



And on multiple occasions, I've had people showing up and telling me they heard about me through you. Thank you for what you do.
