This is my very first design with Illustrator. I am really excited and overwhelmed by the possibilities of designing on the computer versus painting everything by hand. I have the skills in Photoshop to get some basic things done but when I first attempted Illustrator it was like it was written in a foreign language. I took a one day class at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond and it was helpful to get the basic idea of how it works. When it came time to pick a online course there were tons of choices out there. I picked Nicole's Classes and it is working out great. I liked how I was able to order the book form of the class to keep after the 5 week class is over.
