In early January 2023, I worked on a personal project that coincided with the rapidly growing advancements in AI technology. My intention in sharing this project on LinkedIn was to demonstrate how creatives could potentially use AI in innovative ways that augment rather than replace our creative abilities. The post gained immense traction and garnered a significant response from the creative community.

For this project, I delved into exploring the capabilities of AI and how I could push it beyond a mere image output application. I began to consider how I could integrate AI-created characters with my real-world photography.

Inspired by the magical wonder of nature as seen through the eyes of my children, and motivated by the idea of repositioning AI image creation as a tool for creative professionals, this story quickly gained popularity and received significant press coverage.
