I love Illustrator.
This may not sound like a shock coming from a graphic designer but there was a time I used to avoid Illustrator like the plague.
I didn’t understand the pen tool or the live paint option. The eye dropper was my enemy.
But one day I opened that irritatingly non user friendly program and decided I was going to become it’s master. I now make symphonies in Illustrator and can live paint with the best of them.
Never let a computer program get you down fellow designers!
