Looking back on history, those that made an impact (good or bad) in our society will continue to be remembered for centuries to come. Unfortunately for some, they will be remembered by either the tragedies they faced in their lives or by how they died.
For example, Edgar Allan Poe, the incredible American author and poet, died painfully in the streets of Baltimore. Or the fact that Nikola Tesla, a brilliant inventor and engineer, was wronged by the famous Thomas Edison. As history shows, both were dealt undesirable hands along the way.
Being big fans of Poe, Tesla, as well as Grigory Rasputin, and H.P. Lovecraft, Daniel and Dawna Davis of Steam Crow have put their own unique twist on imagining what the lives of the mentioned four would look like had they each lived differently. Knowing that they all experienced dark times, Steam Crow decided to revamp each person's life, shaping them in a positive manner. Daniel and Dawna's imagination is pretty neat and creative, showcasing humorous scenarios.
With years of experience in art design, a previous successful crowdfunding campaign on their resume, and receiving positive feedback from their fan base, Daniel and Dawna have decided to introduce their t-shirt line of what they call Altered Egos. The project focuses on producing "vintage style t-shirt designs inspired by the alterative lives of Nikola Tesla, Edgar Allan Poe, Grigory Rasputin, and HP Lovecraft."
When I spoke to Daniel about where the inspiration came from for this project, he noted that he wanted to produce the shirts, with each specific design, in order to celebrate the lives of the four famous figures. This is how he has envisioned an altered ego for each individual:
Steam Crow's creativity is definitely the key here. Each person's ego is different than the actual lives that they lived, making each scenario pretty funny. However, even with the humor, the concept sparks the curiosity of thinking what if they actually did live their lives as their altered egos.
As it can already be seen, Daniel and Dawna have been able to raise well over their original goal, with over two weeks still to go. This indicates that the fan base for their designs is large and growing. Potentially, Altered Egos will attract enough followers that Stream Crow would want to keep the t-shirt line in-stock, instead of making the project a limited time offer.
Overall, portraying creativity to envision an alternate ego life style for deceased famous figures POPs.
