A few days ago, I asked my friend (called in the below screenshot “Johnny Truant”) to give me a prompt for a cover. She gave me an incredibly specific and strange set of instructions:
I used three photos of my own dog (Charlie), “The Barn” by Adriaen van Ostade (dated 1647 according to The Met, making it public domain), and the diagram on the Wikipedia page for Cold Fusion (called public domain in its description).
The result was this:
I tried to make the placement of the photos as random as possible, and tried not to obscure vital details in the painting.
