Project: Connect to the stars

Now available in all of Alaska: Starlink from SpaceX

Just one year before the project became a reality and prior to receiving a green-light with grant funding from the Administration for Native Americans, ANA, Dorinda Kewan, Mayor of Port Lions, AK, expressed her excitement for this next step in connectivity.

She stated “it will be a game-changer for her community” and emphasized”many residents have struggled with slow and unreliable internet connections, which have limited their ability to participate fully in the digital age, stating that it will help level the playing field and give them a better chance at success in the future.”

SpaceX is honored to share that Starlink, its satellite internet service, is now available in remote areas of Alaska. This development will bring high-speed internet access to underserved communities in the state, providing a much-needed boost to education, healthcare, and community economic opportunities.

Holy Week Icons created by .ai

Palm Sunday starts what was prophesied 500 years before Christ returned to Jerusalem on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. — Zechariah 9:9

This last Sunday we begin the seven day journey toward Easter and wrap up the message series, DNA of God. For each day this week we are walking through the scripture and focus that tied to each day of Holy Week leading up to the crucification of Christ.

Usually I would custom draw icons for creative content, mostly because I enjoy it! But this week I was in a time crunch and thought, “I bet this is something and .ai could draw quickly.” Still blown away.

How to

I wrote in the .AI Dall-e image generator prompt:

I began each prompt with “line art logo style Hebrew old style” and then clarified the object desired “donkey and palm branch”, “whip that Jesus used in the temple”, “loaf of bread and wine cup”, “crown of thorns of Jesus”, “Jesus prepares for the cross”, “cave tomb with round stone door”, “Roman soldier guarding round tomb door”, “Jesus walks out of tomb”, “sun rays coming out of rock.”

After using to create the icons, I transferred to Adobe Illustrator to convert to outlines and vector line art. This process took one to five minutes per icon. Initially I was cool with the simple black and white presentation timeline with scripture references and description of each day. But then I realized it’s Easter and people like bright color. So the final result is a bit brighter.

.AI & for the remarkable

You can likely guess why, the highest trafficked post this month was of course a How to PitchDeck 101 featuring none other than rocket man’s hobby start-up turned successful space exploration and innovation lab, SpaceX. Stay tuned, I am schedule to talk again with the SpaceX/StarLink team March 31 about the wrap-up and success launch of Starlink Satellites to provide broadband access to remote parts of the United States, and specifically the remote Aleutian Islands of Alaska. I’ll post updates here and also

And if you are a Tome user, you also received the update published March 23, 2023 chocked full of enhancements and updates. Once of which I am digging more into on the tech side (not with but with coders who want to add third part API features. And would be cool if the tech was useful enough to attract buyers.) added a feature to turn docs into tomes or editable presentation pages ready to be infused as you like. You can access the latest summary via the Here is a quick summary of the release.

Turn documents into tomes

If you’ve been following you’ve likely seen the recent media coverage of .ai tools, ChatGPT and software. Why all the coverage?

First, these tools are expected to disrupt the creative and tech space, not to mention the talent and workforce over the next five to ten years. Controversy and fear are ideal hype tools. But, here’s what’s really happening. Investors are racing to see which .ai software is going to break into the top three and this is where excitement and competition come in.

Pastor in remote Arkansas using .ai in projects

Lund Design & Strategy

I’ve spent the majority of my career with a pretty idiosyncratic job title: innovation pastor.

There are just a few of us around the nation — around the world, really.

What it means is that I’m an ordained pastor, so I officiate weddings, conduct funerals, and preach sermons.

But I’ve also spent years developing marketing campaigns, building websites, and running the design department of the church.

I spend about 40 to 60 hours a week as a pastor, and I devote the bulk of that time meeting with church members, people in our community, creative projects and of course the weekly sermon.

But I spend another 10 to 20 hours on creative side projects. Oftentimes, that involves making pitch decks, logos, or websites for businesses. My clients range from companies like Elon Musk’s SpaceX to the fintech startup Chime.

For years, Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe InDesign were my default tools. Now, I’m relying on AI tools like the new chatbot, ChatGPT, and the storytelling tool, Tome, for my creative work.

These tools are worthwhile if you can maintain balance and not rely on them as shortcuts. Ultimately, what’s important is that your work stays true to who you are.

It all comes back to “creation”

I grew up in a household of faith. My grandmother and mother were women of faith, but they didn’t beat me over the head with it.

It was my decision to believe in God.

I chose to believe that someone created the mountains; that someone created our ability to see — and that someone created our ability to create.

It’s funny how it all boils down to that idea of creation. In a way, creation has been a central topic of my entire life. I’ve always thought of myself as a creator — an artist, really.

I’ve been designing logos and graphics since I was in high school. In college, I started building websites, and soon, I got pretty good at that, too.

Yet the dots between my faith and my work didn’t really connect until I became a father. When my son, Colby, was just three years old he stopped walking out of the blue.

A few weeks later, he was diagnosed with leukemia. He died 11 days later.

It was one of those moments where time stopped, and my priorities suddenly changed. I realized that I could do the same work I was doing for the church instead of a marketing firm. So, I left the corporate world, and a new chapter began.

AI tools have cut my turnaround time in half.

After years of designing everything from websites to college football logos, my creative work is now limited to freelancing.

I use sites like Upwork to advertise my skills. I also have a Rolodex of clients I’ve built up over my career that still commission projects from me.

Before the dawn of AI tools it would probably take me a week — a full 40 hours — to put together a pitch deck from start to finish.

Now, I can pull together a deck in half of that time. AI tools have made my creative process more efficient. I spend more time on the facets of my work that make the most difference to my client or audience.

I charge between $500 to $1,000 for a deck and I make two to three per week.

To me, it’s not really about the money, though. It’s about having a side hustle that keeps me financially stable and lets me focus on what really matters: staying creative.
