digital painting

I installed the CS5 suite on my computer today and was having fun experimenting with digital painting. Painting on the computer is great because there is no clean up! This year,  my goal is to teach myself Adobe Illustrator (yeah it's kind of pathetic I don’t know it yet).  I’m hoping once I learn it, I will be able to submit to more Minted challenges and build up the stationary side of my portfolio. wish me luck!

I find it really funny that our goals are the exact opposite! I love illustrator and can use the pen tool wicked fast to create an element for a pattern but Im so slow and have no idea how to turn my watercolor patterns into seamless patterns...I wish you luck and if you still have any trouble let me know!
