and to make it somewhat easier: pdflatex???

There is an interesting alternative to LaTeX called ConTeXt.  Look at
http://www.pragma-ade.nl for some examples what you can do with ConTeXt. 
It's very easy to produce good looking PDF documents with interactivity. 
So my proposed environment:
  gimp                          for pixel graphics
  sketch, (illustrator on mac)  for vector graphics
    and mpost for scripted graphics in ConTeXt
    (look for metafun on pragma-ade)
  ConTeXt (with pdftex)         for composing and setting text

Hope this helps
