@nearly-mrs-R:  The free dictionary says a cartoon is “A drawing depicting a humorous situation, often accompanied by a caption”… I think it is totally possible for someone to draw you a carton and then have it digitialised (eg. scanned or a picture taken with a high resolution camera) to use it for you invitations. You could look for an artist or graphic designer to draw your cartoon! 🙂

Hi @nearly-mrs-R:, Using a program like Illustrator, artists can do some amazing things- so you can get a really high resolution image. I agree with @alaha: that you should post a freelance opportunity for an illustrator to create your image. Just remember to pay accordingly for the time and talent.

There’s an open-source software called Pencil. http://www.pencil-animation.org/

I used Pencil for my WordPress Gravatar. (http://en.gravatar.com/cynniebuns)
I actually used water-colour pencils and used Pencil to enhance the colours of the scanned copy. (OP, check your inbox!)

There’s also free applications (such as Inspire) you could download for iPad or iPhone to illustrate.

Did you have any luck with this, in the end?

@nearly-mrs-R:  I’m glad you found someone – I was going to offer if you haven’t! 🙂

@nearly-mrs-R:  I love your original invite! If you are into red bow ties in your hair, I could incorporate a bow tie as your super-hero’s charm. 😉 

@chronicwhimsy:  I think it would be fun if we had a comic jam on Wedding Bee! This way, we could brainstorm for ideas! Cool (Each of us alternate drawing a frame, if future Mrs R thinks this would be a neat thing to do!)
