Create a Thanksgiving Turkey in Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator is Adobe Creative Suite's vector graphics program.  Vector graphics instead of creating images from pixels create images from a series of points connected with straight lines or curves.  The advantage of this is they can be enlarged and reduced and still retain a perfect line, unlike bitmap images which get a fuzzy pixelated edge when resized.  So if you are thinking of creating a design that you may need in a variety of sizes (say CD cover to Poster), Illustrator might be the way to go.  Get started learning the basics of Illustrator over this long weekend (you can download a trial version of the program from Adobe's site) by creating a cute Thanksgiving Turkey.
