Adobe invited artists Jennet Liaw and Kervin Brisseaux (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.

"Create when the idea strikes"
By Kervin Brisseaux 
Kervin created the bulk of his design on iPad Pro using Photoshop Sketch and Illustrator Draw, then finished up a few last details in Photoshop.
Kervin: "I worked with Jennet to come up with the concept of a lightning bolt hitting the ground and causing an explosion of creativity. This sort of exploration of a traditional handstyle is what I like to do in my spare time."
"Beautiful solutions don't always result from a beautiful process" 
By Jennet Liaw
Jennet used Photoshop Sketch and Photoshop Mix on iPad Pro to complete her design.
Jennet: “This was my first time working on a tablet or iPad to create anything. I’m so used to working with either Illustrator or Photoshop on my laptop or just by hand with my sketchbook. This was an experience in coming into some kind of center area.”
