posted on 10-10-2018

We’re thrilled to be collaborating with four talented creatives at this year’s Adobe MAX InstaMeets. An InstaMeet is where a group of Instagram users meet up to create together. Alongside these inspiring artists, MAX attendees will have the opportunity to explore the city of Los Angeles and learn creative tips and tricks. The InstaMeet hosts will share their creative insights, processes, and demonstrate how anyone can create their own amazing images using Adobe Creative Cloud tools.

Get to know the creatives hosting the MAX InstaMeets below, and be sure to follow their adventures at #AdobeMAX as they experience Adobe’s keystone creative event.

Robin Eisenberg | @robineisenberg

A Los Angeles-based artist, Robin
explores sexuality, introspection, and adventure with a pastel and neon color palette. Many of Robin’s drawings feature relatable alien women on their own in nature and outer space. She is heavily influenced by sci-fi and fantasy, as well as a love of food, road trips, planets, stars, and dogs of all kinds.

On October 15 at 3:30 p.m., Robin will be hosting an InstaMeet starting at the MAX string art display in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) that will encourage her audience to draw and take inspiration from their surroundings. Her InstaMeet will be on the go — attendees will stroll around the MAX-outfitted LACC, snapping images for reference, and end at a designated location for pizza, music, and a fun drawing session. Toward the tail end of Robin’s InstaMeet, she will walk through her process, showing how she merges traditional drawing into digital files using Adobe tools.

DATE: Monday, October 15

TIME: 3:30 p.m. P.T.
