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"
By Katrin Eismann
Katrin used Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Mix, Lightroom mobileComp 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."
 
 
Katrin awaits the feedback from her three "art directors" sitting behind her, providing thoughts on how to position the type over her piece.

"You're always on location"
By Kahori Maki
Kahori used Photoshop Fix, Photoshop Sketch, Photoshop Mix and Photoshop CC to complete her work.
 
Kahori: “Sometimes it’s easy to forget to be in the moment. You always think about the past or future too much, so I chose this subject of a lady who is pinching her cheek to show ‘in the moment.’”
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.
