I just posted this screencast video on YouTube where I critique vector art created by a beginner Adobe Illustrator user. These critiques apply to any vector art software.

Time-lapse video of me creating the initial sketch of an electrocuted squirrel cartoon character in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Working on initial vector art in Adobe Illustrator CS5 on a cartoon illustration project. Recorded live broadcast via Ustream.
I discuss (as usual) vector art workflow tips, freelancing and business thoughts and general random nerd stuff.
Download the Adobe Illustrator scripts mentioned by John Beatty in the chat during the video.
Some links to Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, which I also discussed in the video. I get these flareups occasionally when doing extended vector art, and general computer drawing with the stylus in general.
This cartoon octopus character was created for a client developing a new baby product to help with diaper rash.
Believe it or not, I had not drawn a cartoon octopus until this project, so I was looking forward to it. I will say that I underestimated the amount of work all those tentacles and suckers were.
Video from recent Ustream live broadcast featuring initial vector line art creation for a cartoon gorilla character design.
I also briefly discuss Adobe Illustrator template setup and usage at the end of the video clip.
Check out the final cartoon gorilla character art on my portfolio site.
