Discover the Magic of Tropland Universe: How Author Josh Gottsegen is Using AI Art to Bring His Fictional Characters to Life

In recent months, Josh Gottsegen has captivated his audience with the imaginative world of Tropland Universe. Using AI art as a tool, he has created concept art for characters in his previous and upcoming novels, as well as a range of imaginative creatures.

Gottsegen, the author of “The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot” and “Joosh’s Juice Bar,” has a background in design and post-production. He has described his new art of using AI and Photoshop as “a wild, new ride.”

Tropland Universe has gained a devoted following on Instagram., with over 65,000 followers, and has rapidly expanded its artistic portfolio on social media. In addition to collaborating with other talented creatives, Gottsegen is also bringing the community together and being a part of the early stages of AI art.

Gottsegen’s upcoming novel, “Myth of the Pear Princess,” takes place in Tropland Forest’s Spirit Realm and features characters such as King Mak, who has the ability to shape-shift, and Princess Penelope, a warrior princess, who experiences life as a boy as she travels between the two realms. Gottsegen uses MidJourney to create vivid concept art for the novel, which he shares on his growing Instagram account. “Combining my previous stories with current projects in development, I can explore new levels of storytelling and get real-time feedback across social media,” Gottsegen said.

In addition to his work on “Myth of the Pear Princess,” Gottsegen has also been posting a variety of imaginative characters from the Tropland Universe on his Instagram account, including unicorns, birds, and fashionista zebra special agents. He is also using his platform to promote kindness towards animals and others.

Gottsegen’s use of AI art has made him a unique and rising voice. “I am thrilled to be able to bring the magic of Tropland Universe to life in a way that I’ve never thought was possible,” he said. “I’ve always been fascinated by the following quote from Terence McKenna, and even more so with our current technological advances. ‘The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish.’

As his platform continues to grow, Gottsegen plans to expand his creative output by partnering with more artists and providing a new voice for artistic expression. Keep an eye out for this rising star and all of the magic he brings to the world of art and literature.
