Blank Canvas: How Do You Learn?

For this installment of Blank Canvas, I’d like to hear from our readers on the topic of learning new design and illustration techniques and software.

Obviously here at the Go Media Zine, we offer plenty of design and illustration tutorials, however not everyone learns best from a computer screen.

Creative types have a wealth of information online nowadays, however many out there learn best from a classroom setting, one-on-one tutoring or perhaps even good old fashioned books.

If you are one of those who keep up to date and expand your arsenal online, what do you prefer as the format for your content — step-by-step tutorials, video walkthroughs, “quick tip” articles or in-depth analysis of techniques?

For our student readers, do you augment your classroom studies with outside sources? If you’re already a degreed pro, what do you use to keep current, and have you considered going back to the classroom?
