Towards the end of 2022 I was looking for a new creative adventure and started playing around with AI generated art with some interesting if slightly surreal results! It was one particular evening in November 2022 that a friend of mine suggested I ask the AI platform I was using (DALLE) to create a street art character based on a virus (being topical for obvious reasons!) and amongst the many exciting manifestations it created this one burst out from the screen.
Long story short I immediately started to recreate the image and found a groove and went with it and Max The Virus was born. AI may feel overwhelming for artists (for good reason obviously!) but I regularly use it as a means to upgrade creative opportunity. In that respect it is hugely useful and powerful. The trick is to reclaim any output by putting your creative soul onto it. A more dynamic version of Pinterest if you will!
So Max The Virus is on his creative journey, evolving each step of the way And I am excited to see how it turns out. Visit the Max The Virus website at https://www.maxthevirus.com
