Daily life of an archaeological illustrator
In my backpack: a camera, pencils, a rim gauge, a trowel… I’m Laetitia Munduteguy, illustrator in archaeology since 2014. I’m drawing artifacts (pottery, flints and objects) on archaeological sites. Hooked by illustration, photography and creativity. I let you discover my world. Drone capture by Jonathan Lisein.
How I became illustrator in archaeology?
Hooked by illustration since my childhood, I decided to add this skill to my first competence: archaeologist. You will find a portfolio of my drawings (pottery, flints and objects) but also a few references to help you learning how to draw artifacts.

What one item would you bring to a deserted island?
I always bring in my backpack my camera (Canon EOS 550D) and my smartphone is never far away…All the pictures have been taken during my trip or trekking. Have a good trip !
I’m passionate about drawing since my childhood. At school, I was staying close to the window and drew on tables. Then, when I was 9, my parents signed me up for drawing adult courses. Huge fan of Hugo Pratt, I did this painting on the wall of my house. I let you discover some examples of my drawing.
