This should be quite easy in wxPython. Make sure to post to the 
wxPython-users list, we're a helpful bunch over there.

Note that there are some issues with wxStaticBitmap and mouse events. 
there was a recent thread about this. Check the archives of wxPython-users.

In that case, you want to pick your GUI toolkit first. You could do this 
with any decent GUI lib. wxPython is an excellent choice for most uses, 
particularly if you want good multiple platform support.

Lots of folks. check the newsgroups and the wxPython demo and Wiki.
