I have been practicing HTML W3C standards both as a freelancer and as a hired employee. I understand how to use the new HTML5 tags to improve both existing and new sites. I'm also very proficient in CSS and I develop sites that separate structure from appearance.
Adobe Illustrator has been my tool of choice for developing vector based art. I lean towards using Illustrator whenever photographs are not used in my artwork. I have a strong proficiency in the program, which I developed through college courses, books, and tutorial sites alike. Shortcuts are another strength. I can teach techniques to increase your speed with the program and improve your artwork.
