Regarding having an artist do the work, that's probably going to be the way it works out in the end.
However, I've always been a "generalist", so I've been able to handle writing, some imaging and other chores (including computer problems themselves), thus I want to learn how to do my own line art if possible.
I forgot about GIMP and will download it and give it a try.
