I like the way that people can tell instantly what his images are and they do work very uniquely but I still cannot get the vibe for Illustrator. For some artists it is a key tool but for my the crisp quality and stark colours turn me off. I am much more of a paintbrush and needle person, I can function if there is a power cut and I can function in any part of the world without the need to rely on my computer. Additionally, I spend half of my life chained to my computer at work and during presentation preparations etc. I do not wish to spend any more time on the thing than completely necessary!
