I work part-time as a cartoonist. I draw strips on paper, scan them, and then color them with an old version of Adobe Photodeluxe. I'm thinking it might be time for me to join 2004. I'm interested in adding a professional touch to my work. Maybe even create some logos for myself and others. Kind of dabble in graphic design, if you will. Would Illustrator be of value to me? What can it do and not do? Is it difficult to learn? What's the best way to learn? Any suggestions and advice would be appreciated as I know zero about the program.
