Ai – beware the crocodiles

I am an “accomplished” and “award winning” illustrator who has worked in traditional techniques most of this long career, till very, very recently, when AI art surfaced in the world. I have extensive experience spanning various art forms and throughout my artistic journey, I have honed my skills and explored diverse mediums, allowing me to express my creativity through a wide range of artistic disciplines.

As an illustrator, I bring imagination to life through captivating visuals and thought-provoking imagery. I strive to create illustrations that resonate with viewers, evoke emotions, and leave a lasting impression, using my keen eye for detail and my passion for storytelling..

But an illustrator should never stand still or work only within their skill range. They should challenge themselves and keep that keen eye on what other illustrators are doing, because that can open possibilities to enhance their own skill. To last in ‘the Business’ you must work with a unique approach to art that incorporates cutting-edge design styles and technology and when we all saw AI art burst onto the scene, we knew that it was a case of ‘adapt or perish’. So, even though there is still a lot of philosophizing and legal ramifications being sorted out in regard to AI art, I began to retrain myself, and train AI algorithms to use my own artwork to give me what I needed. It is by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI), that I now bring a fresh perspective to my creations. The images that AI produces sparks in me different ideas and options that provoke new works. What sets my artwork apart from the normal ‘prompt and response’ type of AI art making is the utilization of AI-generated art, trained specifically on my own imagery and stylistic tendencies.

I am training the AI to learn from my artistic choices, techniques, and personal style, enabling it to generate artwork that reflects my distinct vision. This fusion of human artistry and AI algorithms results in a harmonious blend of traditional artistic expression and contemporary digital possibilities. In other words, through a meticulous process of training AI models, I have developed a symbiotic relationship between human creativity and technological innovation.

By leveraging AI art, I can explore new horizons, push boundaries, and unlock endless creative possibilities. Each piece of artwork is a testament to the synergistic interplay between human intuition and the computational power of AI. This dynamic combination yields captivating visuals that captivate the imagination and provoke thought..
