Our Creative Suite users’ work inspires and amazes us on a daily basis here at Adobe, and we thought to share a handful of great projects that have been submitted through our Keep it Fresh program. Take a look at a few of our highlights below, and if you have something awesome to feature, simply click here and tell us how you keep your work fresh with CS5 or CS5.5, or even with our new Adobe Touch Apps. We may just feature you in a future blog post or on our Facebook Wall!
Chevon Hicks is a Creative Director at Heavenspot , an independent digital creative agency that works closely with consumer brands, movie studios and ad agencies. Chevon not only runs this insane creative agency, but he also happens to be a very talented illustrator.
Recently, he created the gorgeous illustration (above) of Italian soccer player Mario Balotelli completely in Adobe Ideas on his iPad and a Wacom Bamboo stylus, all while away from his desktop. Adobe Ideas allowed Hicks to design anywhere using vectors, layers, and color themes. Although Chevon didn’t use desktop software in this case, Adobe Ideas allows you to put the finishing ‘touches’ (excuse the pun) on your work in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
“For the first time in years, I felt like I was really ‘painting’ with vectors,” explained Chevon.

Tad also teaches graphic design at the University of Kansas – his alma mater.
