What is the best source of information for someone wanting to learn Adobe Illustrator?  I'm interested in learning to do vectors, but don't know the best place to start.

Here are some links for sites with tutorials. http://vector.tutsplus.com/category/tutorials/ http://www.graphicmania.net/35-high-quality-illustrator-tutorials-you-can-not-miss/
http://www.minervity.com/features/illustrator/25-awesome-illustrator-cartoon-tutorials/

This one is about how to create a vector drawing and then how to save it for stock. I found it very helpful.

How I have taught myself so far was to learn how the pen tool works. That is the tool you will be using most to create your shapes. Then once I understood how it works I then scanned some drawings I had made and I traced them in illustrator. Next learn how to color them in and ad gradients. Something I read somewhere was when using gradients always start off with both sides the same color and then adjust from there. It gives it a much more natural look. other than that once you understand the basic tools start practicing. Good luck!
