AI Workflows

A year ago, I embraced AI into my daily creative workflow. It's been a game-changer, to say the least. As a "high-functioning creative," I've always thrived on taking ideas from blurry concepts to tangible reality. Years of refining my process have streamlined the journey from messy, abstract inspiration (think: visions sparked by the world around me) to a finished product. In my art, this might be a physical piece; in my business, it's solving problems – defining them, visualizing the solution, and crafting compelling messaging for social media posts. But AI has injected a whole new level of efficiency and exploration into this process and with the demands of consistent post-able content weekly creation of a 6 week posting block used to take days. The visuals were not the hard part. I would start with a dozen photos, create headlines of the message I wanted to get across, and then spend the next 8-12 hours coming up with clever captions. I dreaded the last part. How many times can you say a simple phrase without sounding like a broken record? I hired writers and I burned through them. Writing that many captions is pure drudgery for even the best of writers.  Enter AI, and within minutes I can have 15- 20 choices of headlines and captions that use the very database of knowledge, people online and connected, that I want to talk to. 

It’s a game-changer for me. 

In my weekly newsletter, I’ve come full circle. I’ve chosen the organic approach. Sometimes I start with a “give me what you got” when I’m stuck and need inspiration, some days it’s research for a list or order of a task I want to explain,  and other days AI is not used at all. 

As I move through yet another journey of a new tech I try to keep an open mind and leave room to make mistakes, fail, and learn.  I have asked a few of my readers when I get the chance, if they can tell when I use AI, and it’s a definite YES. I don’t put them on the spot to give a review, I’m happy enough to have them as readers. Good or bad I’m still on the fence as to how much I use. In the old days of beginning digital, there were a few creators who stuck to film. Yes, you lose depth but in this age of content consumerism, I could see no way to keep up with demand. So I’m all in on AI.  I’m always developing and honing in my workflow and at this time the benefits of AI far outweigh the cons.


Today ADOBE blocked the use of my DALLE image above. After using Adobe for 24 years I believe this is the end of my subscription. ADOBE is known for its underhanded business practices this one goes above and beyond.


There's always a workaround

If there is a topic you’d like to hear more about by all means comment below or direct message and I’ll do my best.

Nothing better than a good question to jump into.

Reach out for a talk over coffee or a hike I give information freely. I only ask to be paid when I do the work.
