Adobe Illustrator [CC] is great for creating graphics. It is not as well suited for multi-page text-and-image documents (InDesign is your best bet there) or photo editing (you want Photoshop). Sometimes [Adobe Illustrator CC] makes your graphic art so simple, as it has many helpful tools, and Adobe even offers tutorials on their website as a reliable resource for learning how to use their extensive tools better. However, artists looking to draw in vectors may prefer a software with more brush options and other artist-focused tools (Clip Studio Paint comes to mind here as being very artist friendly, but I am uncertain about its vector properties). In summary, Illustrator does logos and graphics incredibly well, and can be used as substitute for text layout software in a pinch.
