All technical illustrators deal with projections to represent 3D objects on a plane. They apply standardized projections such as isometry and dimetry, or work in free projections and vanishing point perspectives. All techniques to compensate or at least minimize the drawbacks of representation on the plane and to convey 3D with only one representation.
Technical illustrations are becoming more and more efficient. Views are quickly generated with the 3D CAD model. But what to do when human-machine interactions make it necessary to represent that person? Don’t take a step back with photos or videos. Take a step forward with me to a vector-based digital mock-up also for humans in your illustrations.

Technical illustrations are supposed to convey content (messages). Graffiti should also convey messages (content). In a good technical illustration, the content can be understood by the addressee depending from the context. In graffiti it is rather difficult to get at the explicit or implicit message of the writer.
