Digital Forensic Art Techniques

I continue to get questions through this website from forensic artists who want to know where they can learn to use digital tools in their work. I found there are still no other artists teaching this subject, and no books about it. I expanded my original workshop handout that I’d written for my Digital Composite and Digital Postmortem workshops from 28 pages to about 270 pages, and I’m happy to say it will be published in June 2018 by CRC Press, a division of Taylor Francis Publishing.

The book is a step-by-step guide with many illustrations to help artists learn to use the hardware and software to transition to working digitally. There are chapters on drawing composites, postmortem drawings, and reconstructions. This is not a book for beginning artists who want to learn about the field, but instead is specific to the subject of drawing digitally.
