Crafting New Realities: Art of AI's Unique Blend of Humor and Artistry


Art of AI delights us every day with captivating TTRPG art, humorous product mock ups, and whimsical twists on cultural icons. We asked him about his creative process and influences.


Q: How did you become interested in generative AI?


A: My journey into generative AI began thanks to Kevin Pereira, who first introduced the concept to many viewers on G4tv, planting the seeds of my creative passion.


Q: What are your favorite tools and techniques for creating art? Have they changed over time?


A: I started with Midjourney, exploring its capabilities for over a year. However, I've developed a profound connection with the combination of GPT and Dall-e. The innovation in custom GPT training has been transformative, enriching my approach to art creation and allowing for more nuanced expression. I just wish Dall-e/GPT had inpainting and was a tad less restrictive.


Q: What inspired you to start creating humorous products? How do you come up with your ideas?


A: The inspiration for my humorous products was nurtured by OmegaMart in Las Vegas. This unique, interactive art installation, masquerading as a grocery store, along with the inventive food creations featured on the YouTube channel Good Mythical Morning, inspired me to experiment with quirky and offbeat product concepts.


Q: Of all the products you’ve made so far, what is your favorite and why?


A: Choosing a favorite creation is challenging, but the McDonald's scented fragrance holds a special place in my portfolio. Many of us, at some point, have experienced that lingering scent of fries and burgers. And yet even writing this now makes me want a McDouble…



Q: What TTRPGs or other sources of inspiration have influenced your art the most?


A: I've been captivated by the art of world-building since receiving my first 3.5 Dungeon Master's Guide as a kid. 'Dinotopia' and similar works further fueled this passion, drawing me into fantasy map-making and the creation of vast, immersive worlds. These early influences have been instrumental in shaping my artistic direction, alongside a respect for the immense work and time involved.


Q: Do you have any upcoming projects you’re excited for and can tell us a little about?


A: I'm currently channeling my passion for TTRPGs into creating a free resource of races and creatures, complete with stat blocks and only my best images. Additionally, I'm excited about developing custom GPTs for producing high-quality images and artwork for TTRPGs and product images.



Q: What are you most looking forward to in the field of generative AI?


A: The advancement I'm most excited about in AI is the transformation of 2D images into 3D models. This leap forward will open a new frontier for AI artists, enabling us to bring our visions into the physical world through 3D printing and other mediums. I recently learned about this on one of the latest AIForHumansShow episodes.


Q: How might people support your work?


A: The best way to support my work is by following me on social platforms like Twitter or Blue Sky. It helps me connect with a broader audience and allows AI enthusiasts to stay updated on my latest projects, new GPTs, and more. I often share prompts, and YouTube AI videos with tips and tricks and info for everyone from AI hobbyists to AI wizards.
