I always wondered about the artwork for Adobe app startup screens. Who are these artists? How does their art get chosen? Now I have an idea.
Here’s the new animated sign-in screen for Adobe Fresco with my artwork, inspired by the Palawan peacock and one of my favorite songs, Moon River.
I’m very grateful and proud to be a recipient of the Adobe Creative Residency Community Fund, which has been supporting artists around the world with grants and commissions such as this one.
I was asked to create the artwork using Adobe Fresco, which is great because it's really what I use. Here's a peek at my drawing process on Adobe Fresco. Some parts of the video are at actual speed, but I most of it is at 20x speed because I draw very slowly.
Adobe wanted a dark and dramatic background for the sign-in screen, so I went with a moody jeweltoned blue palette, delicately accented with nude blush. This is a palette I really enjoy using in my art.
I love seeing my artwork come to life on the Adobe Fresco sign-in screen thanks to the mesmerizing animation done by Johannes Eckert! The floaty, dreamy movements are perfect for this moonlit scene.
Johannes previously did lead design at Adobe Premiere, and now designs Adobe Lightroom. Check out his work on Instagram @eckertjoh.
Of course, as a textile designer, I could not resist turning it into a seamless pattern design for myself as well.
I always make at least two color options for my patterns because I use the printed fabric to make reversible kimonos. It's like having two kimonos in one!
Thank you so much Adobe! 💙 I loved working on this project with the Adobe Fresco team, and this artwork is among my personal favorites.
