Vector illustrations are common in archaeological publications and field documentation. In this workshop we'll cover how Adobe Illustrator and vector illustrations can be used for site maps, trench and elevation drawings, and artifact renderings. Participants will be introduced to the interface and tools associated with these types of illustrations. We'll cover how to bring scanned drawings into Illustrator and set up a drawing for digital tracing as well as tricks to speed up the process. Additionally, we'll walk through creating artifact drawings using common techniques including stippling.
