Like the other projects of the Wikimedia Foundation, Wikimedia Commons is entirely created by volunteers. It succeeds because people all around the world recognise the benefits of using open content licenses to make their work freely available to others.
Our volunteers have varying skills and abilities. This page showcases the highly skilled illustrators who choose to use open content licenses, using Wikimedia Commons to donate their work to the world. Each illustrator on this page has contributed at least five of our Featured Pictures.

I am a student who is interested in biology and Iranian history. I also follow the news and like to create different maps, charts, and shapes based on data. I've created most my diagrams in vector (SVG) format, because of its many benefits. The software that I use for creating the diagrams and drawings are Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, and CorelDRAW.
I am also active on Persian Wikipedia, as I created its 500,000th article. In 2016, I founded the Graphics Lab on there, to help translation and improvement of the images. I also won the last four logo design contests there. Those logos replaced the main Wikipedia logo for weeks. and were respectively used for the celebration of Nowruz 2015, 2016, 2017 and the celebration of 500,000th article on Persian Wikipedia.Contact details

Joaquim Alves GasparBackground
English: I am an Officer of the Portuguese Navy, now teaching Cartographic Sciences in the university and doing research on the geometry of old nautical charts. My regular contribution with photos and illustrations to Commons started in 2006. I normally use CorelDraw in my ilustrations and animations

I'm Eric Gaba, aka Sting on Wikipedia, French born in 1966 and live in Brazil. I'm helicopter pilot and photographer.
I joined Wikipedia in November 2004 with my passion for Greek Antique history and in 2005 the Graphic Lab on WP-fr. With the lack of schemes or maps in the project to illustrate articles, I started to learn about Inkscape and create my own pictures. Still not satisfied with my maps due to the difficulty of finding sources of good quality, I heard about Digital Elevation Models provided for free by the NASA or other US government agencies in early 2007. This was really the starting point for me creating good quality maps for the project.
As pilot, I like very much see a map with the representation of the relief as it explains many things : the location of settlements, borders, movement of armies, etc. And the DEMs provided almost all I needed so I got more and more specialized in that area. Gaining experience with the software, I started to extract elevation layers and vectorize them in order to create topographic maps and wrote tutorials to help other contributors to draw maps of different types using DEMs.Contact details

I am a French computer engineer, living in France.
I joined Wikipedia in December 2005, and the Atelier Graphique (the French Graphic Lab) in 2007. First it was to create maps of the Marquesas Islands, so I followed the tutorials made by Sting (see above). Then, I continued to draw maps, and also diagrams and schemes, on various subjects.
My favourites softwares are Inkscape and the Gimp, and GlobalMapper & 3Dem for the maps.
I am a Chilean Illustrator, aka Fiestoforo, living in Santiago of Chile.
I have been collaborating in Wikipedia since 2005, and joined Wikimedia Commons in 2006.
I illustrated first for fun and later as a way to express myself.

I can do both 2D and 3D illustrations, as well as some technical 3D renderings via POV-Ray. See my full gallery for all contributions so far.
Requests are encouraged. I cannot guarantee I'll be able to fulfill the request due to time and complexity constraints, but I'll certainly look into it.Contact details
