The Squeaks Caper

A few years ago, at the height of the nonsense, a friend was sad. Heck, the world was sad. Lawdog, like me, has a bit of the clown in him, so he was doing his part to entertain and amuse the world at large.  I was doing art every day, and he’d been posting funny… Read More The Squeaks Caper


Process of Elimination

I was messing around with art, and thought it would be fun to unpack my thought process as I worked towards what I wanted.  My first prompt to MidJourney was “graceful dryad in green chiffon, fashion photography, green vines –ar 2:3”  I wanted to see what I got for dryad, first, and I really like… Read More Process of Elimination

Art, science fiction


I’ve got a headache, so I’m sharing a few rockets with you. What’s your favorite? All images rendered using MidJourney. Prompt was rocketship landing on busy spaceport, alien planet, ringed planet visible in sky, twin moons –chaos 100 –ar 2:3 –v 4

Art Peregrinations

A bit under the weather today, but MidJourney rolled out V4, so I’ve been playing with it. This is a whole other level of AI art and as much as I have been doing? This is only getting better. So much fun. Honestly I could play with it like a game for hours. The story… Read More Art Peregrinations


Drawing Prompts

Every year in October, I take part in the global phenomenon where artists draw every day. Unlike the majority, for copyright issues, I no longer call this by the name the movement started out with, and out of an excess of caution, I also don’t use the prompts lest there be an IP issue with… Read More Drawing Prompts
