On the first day of class when we were in the CDSC, I brought a sticker from where I work at the Student Entertainment Board note written to me by one of my best friends Emily, a card my Nana sent me, a few backstage passes from different shows I have been to this past year, and my business cards. After practicing with the scanner, I hope to bring something that I write on a piece of paper. I think that if I bring in a poem that I wrote (I think I will be able to find one that I wrote out in high school), I will be able to showcase both the texture that I want my project to have and it will also bring in things from my upbringing, instead of just current things. I also want to find some old tickets (movie or concert) and maybe a few old pictures (that I don’t have digital copies of). I think that these things would add a lot of personality to my project that current objects could not bring.
I think that these are all objects that are interesting for my digital comics collage because they are all important aspects of who I am as an individual. After deciding to focus on things that are important to making up who I am, I was able to add more texture to the scan. I really think that the amount of details the scanner can pick up, especially regarding the texture of each piece that I plan on scanning, makes this project really interesting. Since a lot of the things I want to scan are pretty flat, but still have texture, I think that it will be interesting to see how the depth of things like a journal, or backstage passes (with the lanyard attached), or even something like a Rubik cube will add to the entire comic as a whole.
