I recently got the opportunity to write an article
for Adobe Create Magazine
about my trip to Adobe MAX
last year. It's a guide for first-timers from the perspective of a former first-timer, and I also wrote an accompanying article
on my drawing process for the illustration.
Below are a few process shots, but the good stuff is in the article. Seriously, check it out.
I explain the whole process from start to finish and I geeked out pretty hard.
Things get fun when you examine the underlying structure. So many parts are solid black in outline mode, and selecting every shape is just nuts.
I couldn't have done this drawing without the help of my students and colleagues who served as models. Pictured below from left to right, top to bottom: Malik, Mattingly, Mattingly again, Alia, Rom, Lucas, Leilani, Neil, Gracie, Robbie, Frazier, Julian, Julian again, Edward, Blue, Julien, and Elektra.
Thanks for the opportunity, Adobe. You rock my socks.
