Fun with AI Art (Artificial Intelligence, not the other one)
As a writer, I see the advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) like in chatGPT (chat.openai.com) kinda like a carriage maker the first Model T Fords rolling off the assembly line. However, as the apex of my graphic art is doodling spirals on the desktop with overpour from my coffee, my reaction to AI art is woo-hoo! Now I have artists on tap I don’t have to pay. On the Starbucks scale, less than 1.5 handcrafted beverages per month counts as no real cost at all – and using the online AI art programs gets you a lot of ‘artists’ on tap per month for that and less, even free.
You might have noticed I use a red robot clock on the website as a mascot. It’s been joined recently with a yellow robot clock of the same design. Yes, I risk terminal cute, and if your tolerance for such is low, please move on. If you can handle ubercute, these are the images the graphics AI program Dall-E (openai.com/product/dall-e-2D) produced using only the text I’ve given with each image.
Not knowing how the copyright issues will play out means I wouldn’t use AI art for something like a book cover, but I’ve no problem using it for small things like images to go with my blog postings.
