  • Using a Doodle to Make AI Art

    One of the most fun things to do with the AI Art apps is using a doodle to make AI art. It’s a very easy process. I use the Procreate app to create a really simple image, and then feed it into Wombo AI app with some descriptive prompts.

  • The Addictive Nature of AI Art Apps

    I’ve been thinking a lot about the addictive nature of AI art. Using the AI art apps often feels like using a slot machine.
