Archangel of the Wasteland is tongue in cheek Brooklyn folk music duo August Packard and Anna "Sherwood" Ross. They wanted their 2022 EP album cover to be an abstract representation of their band name with visual inspiration from the south-western US where they're from with a hint of National Parks poster style. I utilized the Midjourney AI program to iterate upon ideas and happily landed on these results.
Below are the many iterations I generated and prompted & improved upon.
The text prompt I gave the program was "archangel floating with wings spread in a desert wasteland facing nuclear mushroom cloud in the distance, national park poster, flat colors, --aspect ratio: 1:1"
