          I create generative art. Illustrator offers an API so I can automate that process. Yes, its big, its ugly, the never-ending updates reduce my machine to a crawl, and the subscription model is death by $49.99 every month.

          I use Illustrator to create or modify already created logos, monograms and other vector graphics I want to use in other designs.
