    illustrator advice needed

    hi all,

    ok, ive applied for a new job as a web developer.

    2 main requierments are a thourough knowledge of photoshop (id say i was failry advanced with this)

    and a thoughrough knowledge of illustrator.
    now thats the problem... i have a basic knowledge of the software such as text on lines, adding points, etc etc.

    but nothing much past that.
    i have about 2 weeks of afternoons/evenings/nights free so i have a fair bit of time on my hands.

    can anyone point me to a really good illustrator tutorial site?
    i cant afford the pay ones, and to be honest a couple i tried were not very good.

    but is there a few decent sites out there that i can run through just to get a good idea of illustrator for the web?

    any help would be vastly apprecieted.
    i know im qualified for the job as i can build websites, high quality images, yadda yadda yadda... but if they question me on illustrator im screwed lol.

    well i got a phone call a little while ago.

    company wants me in for an interview.
    woohoo.

    anyways, went and bought 'visual quickstart guide' to illustrator 10 and got hold of the wonderful 30 day trial from the adobe website... so lets see if i can learn it in 30 days! :-D

    if anyone can think of additional books or websites for help... please let me know cheers.
