I'm well aware that this is borderline off-topic, but does anyone know how authors include (apparently) hand-drawn pictures in their books, such as this one from a programming textbook:

enter image description here

Such pictures seem to be too perfect to be made by hand, and show no sign of having been scanned. But I cannot imagine doing this with TikZ or Inkscape or any other drawing tool.

    You can create graphics in any graphics program you'd like and include them in documents in the normal fashion. Even if hand drawn, nothing stops the artist from using a graphics tablet to do the drawing. – TH. Jun 27 '17 at 17:01

    An intresting question with a related topic. Maybe it will help. – Bobyandbob Jun 27 '17 at 17:11
  • you could see the example code here although hard to believe those diagrams were hand drawn, not precision coded in tikz – David Carlisle Jun 27 '17 at 18:49
