For those of you on Flickr, add your work to the official Technical Illustrators.org Flickr Group.
It’ll show up in the fancy widget in our sidebar, and from time to time we’ll feature work posted to the pool on the blog.
Hello, welcome to TI.org. After a ton of searching for a website or forums dedicated to Technical Illustration I realized, to the best of my knowledge, that there was a serious lack of content out there. At most you usually find a post or 2 about how to draw in isometric or a random interview with Kevin Hulsey. I mean we don’t even have our own magazine! I know we are a pretty small, niche group but there are enough of us out there to justify creating a new site where we can all exchange ideas, tips, network with each other and hopefully get and give inspiration along the way.
I got a hold of James about my idea for a site and he just happened to be thinking the same thing and he moved ahead full steam to get this site going, so thanks James. We also welcome contributions from anyone, so if you have an idea or suggestion for the site, leave it in the comments or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep checking back in as we will be updating it often.
Thanks and I hope you will enjoy the site.

“Technical illustrators create highly accurate renderings of machinery, instruments, scientific subjects… technology, cartography, or virtually any subject that requires precision interpretation…to achieve the most explicit and accurate visualization of the subject or information.”
