      I would learn to use the pen tool in Illustrator.
      There are plenty of tutorials, but one of the best ways to learn it is by tracing simply shapes and then progressively working on more and more complex ones. One exercise is to trace lettering--especially cursive logos, etc.

      Learn about compound paths and ways to use the pathfinder tool.

        In addition to the Pen Tool, it is a good thing to learn to use the Variable Stroke tool. That is my new favorite Illustrator tool right after the pen tool.

        These were probably sketched and scanned first. If I were going to do these, I would sketch and ink them first, then scan and bring into Photoshop for tracing on a good contrast image. Once the work path is set in Photoshop, I'd export just the path and bring it into Illustrator for finishing.
