You can subscribe monthly and have full access to ALL the Adobe products, including Illustrator.

Unless you have an especially good reason that you must use Illustrator, a very good alternative is the FREE software program called InkScape. It will do pretty much the same tasks as Illustrator or CorelDRAW.

For everyday vector drawing, I find the Vectric drawing tools more than adequate. I seldom use my Illustrator or CorelDRAW for vector drawing anymore.

I'm the same. I use Aspire the most and rarely use Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw.

Also look at Affinity Designer, which is only $50.

You can't "just buy" Illustrator, unless you buy someone's old copy. It's subscription only now.

I'm not sure if they even allow license transfers.
