Plant Daddy Selfie

I believe that nature needs to be taken care of by people who have time. I believe that in its infinite wisdom, the universe recognizes that plants are important lifeforms on this earth, so it keeps a small group of people to take care of them.

When humans with offsprings are too busy caring for their own, a different class of people exists in nature so they can care for the planet.

That’s why plant daddies exist and will continue to exist in the future. The garden needs to be taken care of. Without plants, we won’t be able to survive.

This series of images were made after a selfie I have seen before. I used the Canny and Soft Edge control net to control the pose, while prompting for different backgrounds with plants. These were made at a time when I experimented with various control nets. I couldn’t believe that it’s been a year already.

Selfie Series

The Selfie is a commentary about selfies seen all over Instagram. It is a technical challenge, made to see if I could replicate that same look and feel from selfies that are casually snapped, and as such with a figure situated in a surrounding that’s not tidied up. AI is great at making perfect things, so creating surroundings that are natural and messy poses its unique sets of challenges. This series originally started as a joke, but was generally very well received. I also tend to get so many DMs every time I post them because most people don’t read description and they always asked if it’s me. Short answer: no, but the first two me in this series is based on someone special in my heart.
