I have been wanting to create a whiteboard cloud computing illustration for quite some time now. I love business silhouettes, and I love hand drawn vector artwork. Combining the two has never made much sense before, but in this situation, it was the perfect solution. I took a photograph of my husband in a suit and tie, had him pose holding a pen and pretending to draw on a transparent whiteboard. Then I drew the cloud computing diagram myself and scanned it in, converted both to a vector format and combined them. Viola!
I really love this concept of the whiteboard with a silhouette. It is very clean, crisp, and clear. Silhouettes look very professional on websites, blogs, articles, and just about anywhere else. As you can see in the illustration, I included several elements that can be involved “in the cloud” such as a lock (cloud computing security), a graph, a document, a folder, a desktop pc, a lap top, and a smart phone.
One of the great things about vector illustrations is that they are so easy to edit. Anyone with a vector editing program such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, or Freehand can change colors with a click, rearrange the diagram, or completely adapt the illustration to suit their needs.
