School Survival: The Webcomic

Is anybody here better at art than I am? Even just a weense? Just enough that we can have some consistent-looking pictures of those bald apelike critters that walk upright?
'Cause If we were to portray the full range of reasons school sucks in an appealing, widely available format. Because every time I find an aknowledgement of school's inadequacy they never go into detail and it's always burried under other things like non-oppression related vampire puns or something. And it's generally a throwaway joke, or being used to shape the way we look at a character instead.
What if there were some sort of story to correspond to or shape the way the readers look at school and the related societal demerits?
Anybody on board?


My ideas
-Satiric parody of the glamorous school genre, like there's an unusual school where unusual things happen, but the whole thing has more of a "even Hogwarts sucks" or blatantly allegorical theme than an Academy Of Adventure played straight.
-Possibly something for students the way Black Beauty was for horses, and with a vibe like classical dystopian stuff even though it's also pretty slice-of-life
-Voices, maybe narration, that represent the omnipresent anti-student, anti-youth rhetoric that can't easily be pinned down to a single source. Sort of as a foil to the protagonists, in league with what the antagonists imply, say, and do

Write 'em down, then find a graphic artist.

The thing is, how? I don't know how to find one, or how to ask to collaborate with them, especially given the conditions we'd have to work with. I was hoping someone might volunteer so they could be the one asking the questions. Amongst less explainable things.

There are tools that make it easier to create comics without needing to draw. I have no personal experience whatsoever with any of these, but it may be worth looking into:

If we agree on a generator/app/whatever, then anyone who uses the same thing with the same settings can theoretically make SS comics, without relying too much on one person. In theory.

We could always try artistic media that convey humor without requiring too much time or talent. A nation-based-RP community I'm a part of likes making polandballs, for instance.

Well what I need is something that would attract readers, and non-original art would probably be a turnoff. Because without something distinctive and new, the comic might be more likely to be viewed as griping instead of muckraking.
