technical illustration commission

Hello! I'm daiyi, a software engineer who likes explaining complex technical topics through bespoke visual aides, sketches, and comics. Talk to me, I am v approachable \o/

Why should you hire me over some other rando

  • I have a technical background (I am literally an engineer). You can "work with me" (aka dictate your desires) to the extent that you want to, but I can also run with whatever you throw at me and actually write teaching/explanatory content (which is the hard part!) Any illustrator can draw what you tell them to, but can they dream up of shockingly niche and deeply relatable distributed system memes?
  • I have a pretty big technical following on twitter and am part of a sketchnotes collective that will spread awareness your things by shouting about them at folks who would actually find it interesting
  • I will absolutely use your commission dollars ONLY for wholesome purposes, such as buying local vegetables, or expanding my rack into aid-climbing gear

What are my services?
