I am planning a graduation party for a high school senior. His friends and family have always considered him to be a real life incarnation of 'Calvin' from the comic strip - Calvin and Hobbes - which is the theme of the party.
So - I'm interested in creating 'comic strips' in the same style as a Calvin and Hobbes comic strip. Recreating the originals - but with the likenesses and content related to graduate's life. substituting his likeness for Calvin's (not a caricature - but a character illustration of him as a child) as well as his parents (the other main characters). Instead of a tiger as Hobbes, I'd like to substitute an elephant (inside joke). I'm planning to take the digital art work and have it printed on 'foam core' - and then hang it in the space for the party.
The party is May 21st, so I was hoping to have the art work completed no later than May 1st - which I hope gives enough time to get it printed.
I've attached three examples with instructions which should help explain the concept. The deadline to complete the project would be no later than May 6th. Depending on response and and ability to complete as requested, additional strips may be required (with more original characters added to the strips).
