Hi Ron,

What you are looking for is the _ComplexMap_ standard add-on. The 
following lines should help you to start with it (note we use pure 
function to code sin(x + i) as Sin[#1 + I]&):


CartesianMap[Sin[#1 + I] & , {-Pi, Pi}, {-2, 2}];

PolarMap[Sin[#1 + I] & , {-Pi, Pi}, {-2, 2}];

Also I would urge you to check David Park's _Cardano3_ package (and 
indeed the whole web site which is full of outstanding add-ons for 
Mathematica). Have a look at

Best regards,
