What have I wrought? Nobody believes a word I say now!

Ha! Good game !!! Instead, I got to know the work of the printmaker Martin Lewis.

It was helpful. Thank you…

What was weirdest about this post is that it took me until about halfway through to actually grasp that these images and story are *real*, and not another Midjourney experiment. I know you've been getting better at Midjourney recently… but not THAT good ;)

These do have a distinctly 'human' character to them.

I did have to check, to preserve what little remains of my own sanity;) The problem with googling Martin Lewis in the UK is all the hits are for the financial pundit/TV presenter of the same name.

I did find https://www.artnet.com/artists/martin-lewis/ containing many of those examples & a wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Lewis_(artist)

Ha :-) Yes, he's real... I realize I may have reduced the trust levels around here recently!

Really enjoyed this set of lies!

What struck me was the way in which the (fictitious) artist captures the potential of movement. There is a real energy to them and it speaks of things in potentia. I want to see what happens next.

Are you allowed to make up artists that used to be real artists?
