This was a great class to find inspiration. The resources and examples she shares are helpful and useful.
This map making course was super inspiring, interesting and fun. Now I cannot stop making maps! I love how Anne not only gives concrete information but also provides lots of history and examples to get your creativity flowing. I highly recommend this class if you love cool maps and always wanted to make your own. It's the reason I joined Skillshare and I am so glad I did. This is just one of the many great courses. Be sure to check out all of Anne's classes. Inspiration galore!

Oh, that was such a great class! My head is about to explode from all the info shared by the tutor, and my heart is about to burst with joy and bliss! Seriously, that was full of tools and inspiration, and I am going to skip dinners and stuff, so that I can sit and draw maps all day. Thank you, Anne, you are such an inspired and inspiring gal! I'll be submitting by project soon.
