long story short i want to make my best guy friend an awesome birthday present. it's a goody bag comprised of a million things representing jokes and then a real present, which i still have to figure out. i want to have it as a scavenger hunt but where he has to read a comic book and do what his character in the comic book does to find the presents. however, im not the best artist....at all. i do have photoshop and everything and im crafty with a computer. can anyone point me in the direction of help as far as making a comic book is concerned? i do want it to be several pages because there really are a lot of gifts. and in the comic i want the gifts to kinda come alive and explain why they are there. for instance a teapot will be singing "im a little teapot"... that will make sense in a moment...

We have a joke about him singing you are my sunshine and im a little teapot when he is wasted. any crafty ideas on how to incorporate those into his present? im thinking clay is the best bet but i dont know. i have a screenprinting kit i wish i could use and make something awesome with but i have yet to master the kit, in fact... im horrible at figuring it out. i do love crafts so any ideas work!!! thanks in advance!


hope this makes sense, ask questions if needed!! Smiley

Regarding the comic book part maybe it would be best to get hold of a few real comic pages as a starting point which you can then adapt, it would save a lot of room on the artwork front (as in you could just alter the background but you would have the basic artwork for a person etc)

well i am all about 100 percent originality.

like my mom is all into arts and crafts. she is actually an art teacher. the gene seemed to go to my brothers and skip me. i have no real talent with drawing and stuff.

however, my mom is helping me with everything but i am doing all the actual work so its from me. im really big about it being from me lol.


he is thinking about moving, perhaps this gift will change his mind...


ha ha, i doubt it.

i'd say for the comic book, just do what you can. Even if the drawings aren't the best, he's going to appreciate your effort. When my best friends grandpa died, I made a comic book to cheer her up... and it worked wonders although i drew stick people and arrows for movement lol.

at our walmart, we have a little ceramic tea set for girls. and it's rather cheap (can't remember how much off the top of my head. i think it's $4.88) You could buy that and than spice up the teapot to his liking? If you're not down for that, than yeah...clay is all that I can think of too.
