Using Art As A Therapy Tool

3 Ideal Gifts for Comic Strip Fans

If you have someone in your life who loves comic strips, then you can find unique ways to celebrate their interest. Comic strip gifts include a wide range of options and give you the chance to branch out and really select a unique present. Browse through some ideas and see what stands out as you shop for special occasions.

1. Comic Strip Apparel

Many comic strip artists have converted their artwork into clothing items. Not only do you have multiple options for this type of apparel, but you can select from different designs as well. If the comic strip has a specific logo or title design, then you could purchase clothing with the design.

For example, farm animal comic strips may have signature characters, like cows and pigs, that are featured on clothing. You could also find apparel with prints of actual comic strips that are printed on a t-shirt or hoodie. Other apparel options include hats, tank tops, or long sleeve shirts.

2. Framed Comic Strips

A framed comic strip is a nice keepsake that can protect the quality of the comic and creates a nice piece of decor. Comic strips are pieces of art, and you can treat the designs like one with a framed comic strip. Make the comic look even better in the frame with the use of a matte. A matte adds a border around the comic and makes the frame look even more professional.

You could find out the person's favorite comic strip release or favorite character to focus on. Or you could frame the very comic in a series to showcase the sentimental history of the comic. This is also ideal because they can display the comic throughout different rooms in the house, including a home office or home theater.

3. Convention Tickets

Current comic strip artists often connect to fans through art conventions and other gatherings. Do a little research to see when a person's favorite comic strip artist is making a convention appearance. You could purchase tickets so the person could visit the convention, get comics autographed, and purchase other apparel.

The experience will be memorable for everyone involved and gives comic strip fans a way to find a deeper connection to the material and artists behind the creation. Some comic strip conventions could include panels or question and answer sessions. Check official websites to see schedules and upcoming appearances at conventions around the country.

Take some extra time to research gift options and find unique ways to celebrate comic strips.
