Channel Art

It's pretty clear that people want my channel art to be "Hey there, Nancy Drew Clue Crew!".

But what does that mean? Do you want a blank screen, with nothing but those words on it? I've got a professional artist on the line here, and I feel like the prompt I give him should be more than just one sentence. You know?

You know how Little Jackalope had all of those items scattered as her background layout in the old version of The Amateur Sleuth Blog on Blogger? Like with the medallions from Treasure in the Royal Tower, and Koko Kringle bars, and Nancy's magnifying glass? Can that person do photo shop on certain things from Nancy Drew games, and put them all around your cover photo? And make a cool background color, like maybe a dark blue, referenced to games #1-9 screen frame when playing. And then write in the middle, "Hey Nancy Drew Clue Crew!"

I don't have any specific idea - but - I think the art work should reflect you as a whole.
While your videos tend to be more Nancy Drew than anything else, you do have other interests.
Think about what you think best represents you and your channel. Try to incorporate that into the art work. It'll give new and old visitors a better sense of who you are.

Maybe you could ask the professional artist how they feel about it, and how they would go about doing it?
