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. 
Vector drawing started in Adobe Draw on my iPad Pro with my Apple Pencil, then finished in Adobe Illustrator on my Wacom Cintiq. 
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.
Again, check out the articles on Adobe Create, and after that, consider signing up for Adobe MAX because it's an amazing experience. 
Thanks for the opportunity, Adobe. You rock my socks.
