Cowgirl (DALL-E).

An evening's lighthearted collaboration with DALL-E, a machine learning model that uses natural language input to create brand-new images. Together we went in search of the perfect cowgirl. I was curious if it could capture my style of portraiture. (If this is your first stop on my page, please gather a sense of my pieces and then return.) Key text phrases included "paper collage", "soft pastel drawing", "asian cowgirl", "green skin" (which it refused to comprehend as-is and often chose to turn into green something-else), "red cowboy boots", "retro movie poster", and "surreal". I suppose my style can be summed up in this way. These are some of my favorites, and I plan to use a few as jumping-off points for future work.
