(Ab)Using What You Got

I like to use random ideas. Generally, I hate spam but spam comments have cause some of my better writing to come to the forefront. In this week's version, "a better life with Spam", I'll be posting images of artwork based on Artificial Intelligence. 

This was a project I started a few months ago. I like the unicorn but wasn't sure where the rest of it was going. 


Queue up the spam suggesting Artificial Intelligence to get things done more efficiently. Since I was lost on this image, I didn't know how to proceed. I upload it to Deepart.io and the results are wonderful. 


I've tried redoing this image in oil paint, but that seems wrong. I think I will try colored pencils, which isn't my favorite choice, but I think it could work. 

On a side note, I generally don't delete spam. Some of it is amusing, such as the guy at a consignment shop that tried to imply that his goods were magic items to tie into my 52 Weeks of Magic posts. Classic. 

Let me take a second to shout out Fat Goblin Games, 3dMakerworks.com, and Goblin Clan Miniatures. These 3d printed products came into my awareness via a spam link. They have suspended their affiliate program, but they so nice, I can't help but suggest them for your table.  

Having said that, I have noticed an uptick with tech themed spam which has been deleted. The problem with tech products and spam is they can do nasty stuff with your data. I will implementing a policy of report and kill from here on out. If you have noticed missing comments, that is why. 

My apologies, but I can't host something dangerous. 

As always, if you have a product or website you want promoted, post a link in the comments or hit me up at Facebook, Twitter, MeWe, Dice.Camp or Mastodon. I am always looking for new stuff and content for my site, I would love to do a write up on you.
