Hi everyone, I've just joined this forum because I'm interested in graphic design as a complete change of direction from my current job. I've always loved drawing and designing things on paper and on the computer, but was put off art college by (my dad) at the age of 15 in favour of a "proper" job! I'm not planning to give up the day job just yet (bills to pay!!) but hoping to learn the skills I need slowly in my spare time so would appreaciate any advice. I'm currently having fun with an Adobe Illustrator demo which I used for a village project, and I'm trying to learn more about all the tricks of using it!
