How to get a job and other experiences as a starter?
I sent a letter to every printing company within a 50km radius - something like 50 letters, personalised, with a copy of my CV in it.
I got many a call. Not sure if that would work now. It's a bit old school.

What is the best ways to gain your skills?
Real life projects. Things work out so different in the real world than they do in a controlled environment.
It's a faster pace, it's unforgiving and it's relentless. Working in the real world is the best way.

What is the easiest/fast ways to learn Graphic and illustration?
No easy or fast way, it's practice, practice, practice. And do real-life projects.
I think 2 years at most and you should know design pretty well.



Grammar is also very important - for instance, you have 2 grammar errors in your questions.
