Build dynamic cityscapes with Brian Yap
The Adobe creative director and illustrator demonstrates how to make a complex metropolis using very simple shapes and lines.
By Jordon Kushins – Two rectangles and a triangle. Those are the basic building blocks Brian Yap uses to form the foundation of one of myriad structures in a dynamic cityscape he brought to life with Adobe Illustrator on the iPad.

As a creative director and illustrator here at Adobe, Yap knows his way around Creative Cloud, and his portfolio is a testament to the capabilities of a variety of apps and programs. “I’m almost entirely mobile now,” he says. “I’ll sometimes scribble in a notebook, or finish something off on desktop, but the tablet is my main tool.”
