I don't tend to use Illustrator for much, I'm affraid. Surely you can just Google something like "Illustrator tutorials" and find loads of free ones? Or if there's something specific you wanna do you could search "[task or effect you want to acheive here] Illustrator (probably a good idea to put the version you're using here)", it's what I do when I need help with Photoshop.
When I had my class, most of the info was in French. I could still try to find the nice website in English with a couple of tutorials. Even if it takes times, would you like me to post it here or on your wall (or anywhere)?
I absolutely despise Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, and anything not-Photoshop. (People claim all Adobe programmes have the same functional layout, but that's a lie. I've been using Photoshop for 4-5 years, and I STILL don't get the other Adobe programmes.) However, I'm majoring in Graphic Design and want to get a bit ahead of the class, so uh.. Thanks for this poll, 'cos I found a lot of tutorials that are useful for me!
