Try impactdesign.org <-----look I got it right!!! you can spend all day going through tutorials on that site, also do all the tutorials on TIEMDESIGN (at top of this page) if you spend a week straight doing that, you will come back here as an expert in both illustrator and photoshop. thats what I do in my spare time....and it makes ya look like your busy.
‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson
