    Problem using paintbrush and pen at the same time


      Im using Illustrator CS4 on windows 7, and i have just 1 question. i have been using the pen tool to sort of outline a jpg image, to give it almost a cel shaded look. I've locked the background image (the source image im tracing with a clipping mask) and have a second layer which is where i have been using the pen to make outlines. I then went to use the paintbrush and found that it always has the circle with a line through it signifying that for some reason the brush tool is not able to be used. I for the life of me can't figure out why, and i'm very very frustrated because all i want to do is use the paintbrush to make some small changes, and my only current option is the pencil tool which is not what i want. any ideas?
