Ryan Cahill - Author of The Bound and the Broken series
Working with Keir was one of the easiest things I've ever done. He's professional, incredibly talented, and just an all around good human. What's more, his maps aren't just maps - they're works of art.J.D.L Rosell - Author of the Legend of Tal
Keir was fantastic to work with! Not only is his work incredible, but he looped me into the process every step of the way to be sure I got a unique, beautiful map that suited me and my books. I can't recommend him highly enough!Stephanie Mann - Private Commission Client
Keir's work is incredible both in quality and creativity. The beauty is apparent from the images on his store page but Keir's communication and ingenuity are what helped turn an idea into a reality better than I could have imagined. The goal of this commission was to create a custom map of real places in a fantasy setting with specific themes for each landmass to tell a story that my father and I shared. Keir captured every detail I requested and offered suggestions to help fill in the gaps. He was patient, flexible, always responded in a timely manner, shared progress updates throughout, and was friendly and professional from day one. The look on my dad's face when he saw the map was priceless and absolutely worth every penny.
