How do I get started with Adobe Illustrator?
I would like to learn to use Adobe Illustrator. I want to go from start i.e learn using each tool first and then move on.
Where can I find tutorials for this (Youtube is a good source).
I cant afford video tutorials from Lynda.
While experience is important, sometimes you don't even know what you don't know, so with something as complex as Illustrator I don't recommend "sink or swim" learning.
I like the "Classroom in a Book" series; I found a Kindle edition on Amazon (U.S.) for about $29. I LOVE the "Teach Yourself X in 24 Hours" books, and the "Missing Manual" books are usually good, but neither seems to have a current edition for Illustrator.
