I’m exploring using Midjourney and other forms of AI for my illustrations. Although not required as a subscriber, I credit Midjourney’s role in each.
In my process, I consult Midjourney for ideas. Much like back in the day working for ad agencies. I used to scan portfolios, competitor works, award winners, and annual compilations before starting a project.
For some images, I combine photos, Midjourney output, manual sketching/painting, and Photoshop work to create a final image. Midjourney is a tough beast to tame. So, because fellow illustrators have asked, I’m posting my Midjourney prompts. As a community, we learn together.
Image for forthcoming podcast, “Slouching Toward Autistic Joy: 6 Weird Stages… Now Surprising Relief.”
“Other People’s Agendas,” original illustration by the author, based on Midjourney prompts, painting, personal photos. Fantasy/horror illustration of a surreal rollercoaster. In the foreground a young man stares up into a bright break in dark clouds above. He is seated in a roller coaster car. In the background wildly imagined roller coaster tracks loop & bend in illogical ways.
Image for an upcoming podcast on Autistic Time.
An imagined pulp fiction book cover, inspired by Bob Pepper’s famous cover for “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,” by Philip K. Dick. A grotesque man’s head, mixing elements of xray, skeleton, watches, watch parts. He stares with one living and one dead eye at the reader. Title reads: “Johnny Profane Âû — Time Stream Meltdown.” Teaser text reads: “After a nuclear meltdown, the Time Stream flows up, down, sideways… Backwards. Johnny Profane must lead a desperate uprising against the chaos destroying his world…” A mixture of Midjourney prompts, sketching, photos and more.
For an soon-to-be podcast on using dissociation and masking as professional survival tools.
A young classical guitarist sits in the middle of a wooden stage with his back to a large, plush nightclub. There is no audience. Directly in front of him, a tall sheet-wrapped ghost hovers in the smoky light of overhead spotlights. The background is dark. Dim lanterns on the walls reveal rows of wooden seats. A mixture of multiple MidJourney prompts, personal photos, sketching & filters.
For a soon-to-be-controversial podcast on ABA & Cognitive Behavioral Therapy fails…
