AI art is causing a stir in the art world right now, but if these latest 'art works' are anything to go by it's our stomachs that are being tested. It has been said that AI art generators could threaten the careers of artists and issues with copyright persists with this technology. But that's not the whole story, some of this AI art is just truly the stuff of nightmares.

Not everything created by AI art generators is impressive, and while many creatives are asking 'should designers be worried about AI?', looking at some of the images being made we're not sure they should be too concerned. As the likes of DALLE-2 become accessible and open to all, we're going to get some strange results popping out of these art generators. (There's some fun to be had too, as Marvels Russo Brothers recently 'remade' The Avengers as directed by Wes Anderson, using Midjourney.)
