Final Digital Comic Collage: Dean Janikowski

My post follows Scott McClouds version of “Juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence, intended to convey information and/or to produce an aesthetic response in the viewer” by using a way of different images that I scanned to make a comic. For my comic I was depicting an FBI agents desk at work. It has everything you would see as an agent in a POV style. In class I really had no idea on what I wanted to do. I originally came into it a little confused on what to bring to scan. So I brought an FBI agent card, a flash drive and a key all not knowing what I should do with it. While we were talking in class Kristin brought up that we shouldn’t scan dollar bills and that gave me the idea to work on something with the government which later sparked an idea in my head. Right then and there I decided I would make a FBI agents POV of his desk and make a comic out of it. The materials I used helped explain my comic I used. For example, the FBI agent card helps show who is involved in this and the phone and coffee help depict that it is early and they are working. The top of the paper that was sketched by hand shows that they are working on a case. The picture of the two boys show who are the culprits.

I have used photoshop a few times about a year ago. It was for some photography and I didn’t really know how to use it at all. So far my experience with photoshop has been good. I have been having fun learning how to use it although it has its downfalls to it. Photoshop is very hard at times. When I am in a rush to finish and I don’t know how to do something it can be really frustrating. The biggest thing I sed for these scans was how to crop. I learned a lot how to get every detail when cropping and I have found it very important. The most confusing thing for me on photoshop is how to find the right tutorial when I don’t know how to do a certain action. Overall, I enjoyed this project and have always loved making something digital.
