OK, so here's the first sort of illustration I've made that I'm going to continue working on. I know what you're thinking--gee, Tori, that looks like a 5 year old drew that. I know I know, and I agree. However, I'm doing this mostly to learn how to use Illustrator because I think it could be a great tool to develop my website with. So, at least for now, check this out.
P.S. any Illustrator Pros out there who see this and have some great tips for me, please don't hesitate to let me know!
