I wanted to do this video tutorial and article for Underbelly on the Illustrator shortcuts that I've been using for the last eight years, and show some rad tools with a plugin called Astute Graphics.
I also made a cheat sheet that you can print out and put on your desk while you learn these shortcuts until they become second nature and apart of your daily workflow!
You can find the article and full tutorial at the link below. I hope that it's helpful and I'm interested in hearing about the ways that you speed up your workflow in Illustrator!
