who is the Andrew Kramer of Illustrator tutorials?

I found some amazingly useful tutorials by Andrew Kramer for After Effects, his tutorials basically cured what was a phobia of the program. My friend is getting into Illustrator and a few videos have been really slow paced and with minimal content. Anyone able to point me in the direction of a good tutorial maker for illustrator?

Well Andrew Kramer is a legend - I use after effects predominantly, and almost every site you visit links to his. I must admit I've found a similar issue to your friend - good AI tuts are hard to find, and I constantly feel I'm doing something in a silly/dumb way. (Often I am - but I'm learning :D)

Deke Mcclelland does some pretty good stuff for lynda.com - I had a month or two there, where I got quite used to his style (He does the photoshop stuff to!) but sometimes he can seem to waffle a little too much, and it was dryer as it was more of a 'course' rather then Kramer's learn-as-you-go/'Lets make this' approach.

I think the problem is that us video makers make video tutorials because we already have skills in that area - AI users would write up something as its easier (And could be too long to video...)

Still, there's some good written stuff out there. Some of my favorite sites are: http://rwillustrator.blogspot.com/, http://vector.tutsplus.com/ and http://www.vectordiary.com. )
