I created this #1 of 1 NFT image, Desperate believers, using AI generative art tool, Conjure.art. I used text from my thriller novel, Stone of Fire, combined with one of my images from a research trip to Arizona.
I used the following quote from Stone of Fire for the text prompt: “Purple sheets of rain bruised the land, punishing the saguaro cacti as they raised their dusty grey arms to God like desperate believers. Crimson and silver-blue cracks broke the clouds and hurtled to earth, the jagged lightning strikes ever closer to the stepped ziggurat of the Biosphere.”
I also used one of my photos of saguaro cacti from the Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix, Arizona, as a guide for the generation, then iterated until the image matched my creative vision.
The text is from the final scenes of the thriller which take place at the Biosphere in Arizona. The NFT includes an ebook edition of Stone of Fire as unlockable content.
