It has been an honor to partner with Adobe to be an ambassador for the Adobe Creative Cloud for the past couple of years. The ambassador program is called Adobe Insiders and is comprised of a handful of artists and creatives from around the globe.
Part of our mission was to champion our local communities and embrace the good around us. I had the opportunity to collaborate with a local organization here in Omaha, NE, called The Big Garden. They are a non-profit whose goal is "growing healthy food, healthy kids, and healthy communities." Together we combined forces to create a mural that they could hang on their property that reflected their mission and showcased what they are all about. Overall the process was really fun and collaborative. After pitching the initial concept sketch to The Big Garden I created the artwork in Adobe Illustrator. We made a few tweaks to get the artwork finalized and then from there we went around and gathered up all of the materials we would need and began to prepare the board we would be painting on. After we got the image sketched onto the board we began painting! The painting took about three days to create and wouldn't have been possible without the help from all of the wonderful employees and volunteers that helped bring this to life.
