During Adobe MAX 2018 I had just enough time to shake Aaron Draplin's hand and ask if he'd be down to let me draw him. He was, and I took three reference photos. Two of them were hopelessly blurry, and one was just kinda sorta ok, so I made do. 

Actually, I think I made do pretty darned well.
Vector drawing in Adobe Draw with my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, and then in Adobe Illustrator on my Wacom Cintiq.
It felt appropriate that this drawing went through a ton of iterations. Here are only a few pieces from that process, as I was too into it to take screenshots while I was fighting with color, rounded corners, and offset strokes.
