Continuing Flash: Tutorials

I’ve come across a lot of tutorials in the past few days, while I was looking to continue my Flash education. I know that I need to keep learning and using the program.

Some of them teach drawing, which I’m worst at. (I can’t draw at all.) Some take ActionScript to a new level of “cool,” and I’m comfortable with the programming aspects of Flash. I’ve come across a few that teach frame-by-frame animation, which I grok would be only a marginally useful skill in the field.

I’ve also been looking at current online journalism using Flash, trying to figure out how they did what they did and whether or not I know how to do it. In many cases I do.

My question to you is: Where to start? Learn to draw, or learn more AS?
