i'll just give you the cliffs:

-recently graduated ad major
-want to do creatives
-don't feel my illustrator skills would be on par with job requirements

is there anywhere I can go practice or get tutorials to better my skill in illustrator? I currently don't have illustrator on my mac but I know finding it for free isn't difficult

any help is appreciated

You could just buy CC and get plenty of Adobe tools. I only pay 20 a month due to using my student email. Though it is a semi waste if you don't use many of their programs. I use Illustrator, Premiere, Lightroom, Muse, and Dreamweaver. Here is a site you may like as well as Lynda: (they are mostly a web design site however have lots of illustrator stuff)

I also go buy magazines that have a tutorial I think may be fun to do. Hope this helps.

I havent done any of these tutorials yet, but I have skimmed thru them. They're less like tutorials and more like little mini-assignments to refresh your memory.

I'd also recommend following Adobe Illustrator on Facebook, they post some pretty useful shit on there.

definitely youtube as well.

lynda and vector tutsplus is a good reference. 

also get a drawing tablet for your computer if you can, drawing with a mouse can suck. 

creative cloud is awesome, good deal imo if you are constantly using the product.
