As if the traditional artist's job wasn't tough enough—years of honing skills, securing rights, and moonlighting as a barista—here comes AI to add a splash of 'fun' to the mix.

Now, artists aren't just competing with each other but with machines that churn out masterpieces faster than a coffee machine pumps out espressos.

The AI revolution was never for the faint of heart. Now is the time to keep your friends close and your silicon foes closer—especially if you plan on keeping that artist gig.

Will Humans Always Be The Center of AI? 

It's kind of surreal if you think about it... Here we are, flesh-and-bone creatures, hoping to harmonize with the digital minds we've birthed from circuits and code.

Think less HAL 9000, and more helpful office mate.

Copycat or Creator? AI's Tug-of-War with the Art World

You thought this debate was going away soon?

In the red corner we’ve got human artists wielding their trusted brushes; in the blue, AI image generators crunching data at light speed. As artists see their styles replicated by thousands of AI-generated pieces without a dime in compensation, they find themselves sidelined.
