Things I make. Places I go. Photos I take.

The Imaginary Boy

Inspired by the imagery invoked in the lyrics from “Three Imaginary Boys” by The Cure, I wondered what would happen if I placed whole sentences into an AI image generator with a few of my own tried and tested creative prompts. The results at first were nothing like I was expecting or wanted but after running through several different ideas I slowly filtered down to a few specific words from the lyrics with my now-altered creative prompts and began to see some wonderful images appearing.

Luna Visage

I really enjoy the process of starting with one idea and following it through to see where it will lead. I began by trying to create an image of a face sewn onto the moon which was harder to achieve than I thought. I tried many different combinations of prompts and although none are quite what I had in mind to begin with I’m happy with the results.
