Ask a Forensic Artist
Forensic artists work with forensic anthropologists and medical examiners to create facial reconstructions from unidentified skulls, and assist law enforcement by producing composite drawings of suspects of crimes. Full-time forensic art positions
are extremely rare, so most artists do the work as a “collateral duty” within law-enforcement. Becoming a forensic anthropologist, medical examiner or pathologist would put you in an ideal situation to work on cases of unidentified remains. If
you are more interested in producing composite drawings, the most direct path is to become employed in the criminal justice field in some capacity ( crime scene Investigator, police officer, etc) and then pursue forensic art duties from there.
