These are good images Cole. It seems you know how to use it pretty well to me:). My favorite one is the first one. It has a certain vibe/flava to it. It seems like a "cool" vibe. I think it's the way you chose to make the eight (8).
hey, you should put nipple rings on that girl, double-points-o-ramma!!! also, you colored outside the lines on the number 8
Are you wishing you could make something more complex? I just need to go ahead and work simple too, since I'm not good at this Illustrator stuff.
i think you did pretty well--since this is your first time of using it. just IMAGINE WHAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE IN A FEW WEEKS. heheeh
lol. vagina. lol.
