Meet Mike. You'll be glad you did.
Left-leaning idealist who is involved in the social and political scenes, champion of outcasts and the voiceless.
Purple is Here
Mike has a razor-sharp focus on the color purple.
His followers are familiar with his range of subjects including design, luxury, animals, owls, and music related imagery.
The color purple is associated with a variety of meanings, including wisdom, creativity, royalty, power, ambition, and luxury. It can also represent magic, extravagance, peace, pride, independence, and wealth.
As much as we adore the color, we really love and appreciate Mike’s human-centric nature.
On his following, Mike says, “in less than 5 months I have reached 50,000 followers, but numbers are numbers, and I care for every person behind those numbers. I hope that this will lead me somewhere, and I love human connections.”
He’s also discovered something about himself in connections, “I learned, more than I thought I would, that sometimes people want and enjoy my work more than I do.”
Being a ghost writer, Mike says, “I don’t really have any technical or manual skill, this is my shot to do something visual.”
Mike uses Midjourney exclusively, “I feel like AI is really democratic, giving everyone the possibility to create and give form to our thoughts.”
He has no plans to deviate from the generative art tool and will thoughtfully consider his options if he pursues learning in the future.
“I've tried with no good results to represent the book "Maxwell's Demon" in an image, if someone manage to do it, they'd be my heroes.”
Signing off in Style
An ode to his name and his penchant for human connection, Mike shares what speaks to his soul. “Every night owl. Every and each night, before heading to bed, I post An Owl to say Goodnight.”
“Plus, any collaboration I did, it reminds me the beautiful time and chat had with the people I have worked with.”
Mike says he’d “love to make some earnings out of it. That said, the idea of becoming an ‘influencer’ and informing people about political stuff here and there sometimes through my art appeals me a lot.”
Find Mike on Instagram @purpleowl_art and in his own words: an owl to say goodnight.
