But it's still a beloved hobby of mine. I try to make all the graphics for my blog and Etsy pages, and I think I do a pretty darn good job! I'm always trying to learn new techniques and tricks, and in my search for cool tutorials, I found this fun one about how to make a cute panda face with Adobe Illustrator CS4.
I think it would be really cool to apply these techniques into making your own cute little face for a Twitter avatar or Etsy icon.
