Several months ago, I took on the monumental task of illustrating my own map of the Westlands of the Wheel of Time… but I didn’t stop there. Once it got to a point where I wasn’t happy with a lot of the techniques I used, I decided to redo a large portion (mountains, forests, etc.) and then LOST the entire Westlands and had to redraw them. I then had the thought, “Well, I might as well do the entire world!“ After all, we haven’t seen a fully illustrated world map before to the best of my knowledge, just flat graphical ones or separate maps divided by continent like in the BWBBA.
If you would like to purchase a full size 40"x18" print suitable for framing, head over to New Creations By Jen today! You will also find individual maps of the Westlands + Shara, Seanchan and The Land of Madmen!

Also, if you’re a Wheel of Time content creator and would like to use my map in videos, podcasts, blogs or Wikis, feel free to reach out and I will provide you a link to download a high-res version for free! (I will assume you’re being truthful and bound by ji’e’toh and aren’t just looking for a free print… all I ask is that you show me how you used it once your work is complete!)
Also, I am working on a full-color version of the full world map. Here is a sneak preview of the Land of Madmen:
