I love playing with AI-powered image generators, but I don’t like the idea of using the artwork of artists who are trying to make a living. So I made PD Prompt Machine!
PD Prompt Machine takes a random book title from the Internet Archive’s Open Library, and pairs it with a random artist in the public domain from the Art Institute of Chicago.
The prompts range from nonsensical to nightmare-inducing (I’m looking at you, “Pooping Dogs Calendar 2022 in the style of Jean-Demosthene Dugourc”) but if you don’t like what you get just try again. Please click politely, though – PDPM uses open APIs and we don’t want to put strain on them.
I will probably come back to this later; I have some ideas for enhancements.
