Adobe invited artists Katrin Eismann and Kahori Maki (in addition to 14 other artists) to work together and finish two poster designs based on principles they felt expressed an aspect of their creative process. They were tasked to use iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and Creative Cloud mobile apps. Over the course of two days, this is what they accomplished.
"Personal work is universal"
Katrin used Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, Lightroom mobile, Comp CC and Photoshop to complete her finished piece. The beautiful ink texture in her photo composite was created by Kahori, who brought in watercolor inks and made a few paintings to share.
Katrin: "My inspiration was just wandering through Central Park. This is my own little saying that I teach my students all the time: 'The more personal you make your work the more universal it will be.' It’s so important -- it helps us to stop worrying about what other people think about us and our work. If you are sincere and honest, it will show."
"You're always on location"
Take a closer look at Kahori and Katrin's finished poster designs. Kahori brought in her own watercolor inks and paper to create beautiful visual textures that were then layered into her and Katrin's finished photocomposite pieces.
