There seem to be a heck of a lot of people here who use Adobe Illustrator. I'm wondering how many, if any, of you actually use AI or a similar program professionally for graphic art. I'm interesting in graphic art but have yet to get AI.

I have AI... Still failing in it's use... But it's there...

AI 8.0.1 User, reporting for duty! Still sucky, but learning. :)

Professionally? As in Logos and Product Design?

I use Corel Draw (same basic thing as AI) to design patterns for glass etching. I don't have any on this computer, so I can't put any images right now. I'll try to put some up later, but I'm not promising anything.

Yes, that kind of "professionally". It'd be awesome if you would put some images up. ^_^

I had a trial for Corel a few months ago but it looked really confusing. :P

Corel is pretty confusing, but it helped that I didn't come over from another program.

Here's something quick I did using some clipart.


This is the original photo, and since it's monocromatic, it could be used for photo-resist. Now to put it on vinyl resist, I had to change it slightly


The latter is what I normally use, and I proabably would in this case to give it an etched 3D effect.

If this was an actual project I'd show the finished products, but I just whipped up a quick example in a couple seconds.
