Ink Drop



Hans Christian Andersen

Classical genius Hans Christian Andersen meets artificial intelligence.

In the Inkdrop studio, we have included this graphic novel among our 2022-2023 projects to be made with gouache or digital opaque colors. Reading Andersen's story a few years ago, we thought it was without a doubt, a story made for visual storytelling.

In May, we discovered painting software based on artificial intelligence and in June, we met Midjourney: artificial intelligence at the service of art.

"The Shadow" was a perfect fit for the challenge to be faced in this new way, due to its classic tone and the enigmatic nature of the shadow. This boundary between reality and its negative side speaks to the human relationships between people and between ourselves and also the relationship between humans and technology, which is why we are here.

The global art community is in an uproar as programs to create images from textual descriptions entered the beta stages of their development in early summer 2022.

Midjourney is an independent research laboratory exploring new mediums, a self-funded team focused on design, human infrastructure and artificial intelligence.

By joining the beta from the website, any user can experience visual art in seconds by simply typing "/imagine" at an interface prompt and typing a text description of what they want done, in which light, color or style. It can also emulate the styles of great artists, even living ones.

It's easy to imagine a huge visual arts revolution on the horizon.

Illustrators and realistic concept artists see their work in play as portrait painters did in the early years of photography.

Magazines are already starting to use Midjourney's art for cover art or article illustrations.

This August, an image by Midjourney called "Théâtre d'Opéra Spatial" won first place in the digital art competition at the 2022 Colorado State Fair. Jason Allen, who wrote the prompt that led Midjourney to generate the image, he printed the image onto a canvas and entered it into the contest. Other digital artists were shocked by the news.

If you told an ancient Egyptian scribe that one day everyone could be taught to write their text freely, he would surely go mad thinking about the end of his caste and similar sentiments captured academic artists observing the freedom of avant-garde movements in the late 1800s in Paris.

The game will change again and somewhere in the future everyone with the right imagination could be a da Vinci, and new abilities will be as valuable to the art as interface interactions.

We are scared and elated to see what is happening.
