After reading "Execute" by @Drew Wilson and Josh Long, I have started multiple projects.
Here's the first shot of the first project: in one weekend (this weekend) I will go from not even knowing how to use the pen tool to being a master of Adobe Illustrator. Starting on 1 April 2013, I will use those new-found skills to release two illustrated posters every month—one will be available for free download and/or $15 print, and the other will cost $20 per print.
So, without further ado, here's the first of many shots this weekend. This is my FIRST TIME EVER using Adobe Illustrator. I drew the hammer and the axe using only the pen tool. The wood texture is courtesy of the talented @Nick Slater.
Wish me luck, everyone! Stay tuned for more.

First time using Illustrator and made this only using pen tool ?! I don't buy that :P JK, Awesome work !
Lol thanks @Xalion™! Yep, first time! I watched a quick intro to the tool on Tuts+ but other than that, I was going in completely blind! I'm glad it turned out well :)
@Dan Eden, @Rogie, and now you. Why does everyone love crossed tools?
@Daniel C. B. Mine isn't my logo, just an icon for fun, but it has a lot to do with the timelessness and balance.
@Daniel C. B. @Rogie I just love the concept of using tools to represent a designer! This actually is going to be my new logo—this is just a test run with some flair.
@Rogie @Devin Halladay Yes, I know. It wasn't really my point either. I just thought it was interesting that you had all made icons with almost the same concept.
