Adobe | Artist Development Fund - Adobe Stock Advocate Project
Details and Deliverables
Available at Adobe Stock
|| Overview ||
I joined Adobe Stock Advocate Project in April 2021 by receiving The Artist Development Fund award. My mission was to create 500 stock images of authentic and culturally representative art to amplify diverse voices.
|| Behind The Scene ||
I turned in my application to Artist Development Fund in December 2020. Below are the project Samples that I included with the application. I received an exciting email from the team of Adobe Stock at the end of February with an invitation to an interview. The interview was friendly and delightful. My project was accepted at the end of March and started in early April.
|| Process ||
Deadline: April - August (500 stock images due in 4 months.) 1) Break down the requirements (500 stocks) into groups and categories such as 100 Japanese food illustrations, 50 home goods, and 200 seasonal cultural events, etc. 2) List up the proper subjects such as sushi, ramen, onigiri, green tea, wooden sandals, cherry blossoms, Japanese maple leaf, bonsai, sumo wrestler, etc., grouped into my defined categories. 3) Get approval from the Adobe Stock team 4) Start creating: Estimate the amount of art I need to create a day to make the deadline: Produce 250 stocks in 2-3 months (5-8 arts/day) Produce the remaining 250 stocks in 1 month (5 arts/day)

I created 500 iconic images of Japan — and they're now available FREE at Adobe Stock for everyone to enjoy and broadcast further through their projects. Mission accomplished.
