    Depends on what type of graphic design you want to learn. I've been in the game a really long time and there are many facets of graphic design. You have to first tell us, what type of graphic design do you want to do? Product packaging, like all the stuff you see on store shelves? Movie posters? Movie matte painting? Graphic novels? Magazine layout? Corporate identity and brochures? I could give different answers for your question, depending on what area you want to learn.

    You should either do a tutorial or a journey to help others.
