This field is rapidly changing as we move from pen and paper to digital databases. Illustrators need to learn to create images appropriate to this new world. This book provides detailed instructions for inking an archaeological illustration of a ceramic vessel in Adobe Illustrator. It is meant as a tool for individuals who already know the basic techniques of drawing an artifact, but want to move past pen and ink and learn to work in digital media. The instructions in the book are at a level which is understandable to novice users of Illustrator, but those with a more advanced knowledge of the software will find the book useful for learning how to apply these skills to the field of archaeological illustration. The book starts at the point in the process when a pencil drawing of a pot has already been created. The reader can use their own drawing or follow along with the image provided. The author also touches on the subjects of metadata and creating appropriate files for digital storage.
