How would I animate the following...

I'm looking to make a very short animation of a girl blowing a bubble.
I'm mixing a digitally created bubble with an animation of a girl motioning the action of blowing a bubble through a bubble maker.
I have already started animating the bubble so that it expands as its being blown, but I havent produced the animation of the girl yet.
After the girl has finished blowing the bubble, the camera will focus onto the enlarged bubble and then follow it along its path as it floats around in black space. I need to make this bubble look quite realistic, so would appreciate any tips on altering the light and in making it rotate in the air realistically.
My plan is to draw the girl blowing the bubble almost frame by frame altering the motion slightly each frame, in Illustrator (would this be the easiest method?), then import this into After Effects where I would merge the animation of the girl with the buble.
