Good article, thanks. I work as an illustrator, and I also find the following tools helpful: 1) Scribus, for multi-page layouts with great PDF export; 2) FontForge, when you need to modify or create a font; 3) Blender 3D (or Art of Illusion), to create 3D imagery with proper perspective; 4) GColor2, for picking colors off the screen. I also recommend Basket Note Pads or Zim for jotting down ideas.
