Maybe D.B. Cooper didn't act alone...


I'm kind of proud of this one because I did it all myself without AI Art pitching in.  I have been going through other t-shirt companies to see what designs they are coming up with and it sometimes gives me new ideas.  This one came from a t-shirt design that just had the single image of D.B. Cooper with his name (or the fake name he gave on his ticket).  I started thinking about things you could do with the name Cooper (not a lot). But it did trigger the concept of AB, BB, CB and DB.

After I finished the first one I had this idea to go even more Andy Warhol.

Again, it was all my work. Not Art AI. I've got a new version of Photoshop that is a little less cumbersome than the version I had before. It helped. 

Now I would wear that t-shirt.

One of the things I struggle with creating these designs is the nagging voice that tries to tell me that I'm not really an artist.  Its because I have identified as a writer for so many years even though I've dabbled in Photoshop for years as well.

I just have to tell myself that I am an artist and my ideas are part of that art. 

I need to ignore the voice. Because it occasionally reminds me that I've written a blog for two decades and it has never caught on. So maybe I was never much of a writer either. 

Screw it. I haven't had this much fun in years.
