“Generative art is accessible by everyone, which is a good thing,” they say.
Libraryscapes is a unique account on Instagram with the niche focal point of “the library” and occasionally it’s staff and visitors. The account owner is from the USA (East Coast).
“Because my main subject stays the same, it’s fun finding ways to keep it interesting with a variety of styles and themes. Currently, I have a theme for each day (Water Wednesday, for example) to help keep myself organized.”
”I started my AI art journey first with WonderAI and then StarryAI and NightCafe. I still use all three, because the same parameters produce different results with each app, but most of what I share is made using locally run Stable Diffusion with a variety of custom models.” they say. “Generating pictures locally allows me to create as many variations as I want and spend time fine tuning details.”
We’re excited to see what new and exciting library scenes will spin up in that future.
Learning & Art
“I’ve learned that I don’t miss spending money on art supplies,” they joke. “More importantly, I’ve learned that that I still have a desire to create.”
We’ve found some similar sentiment to be true amongst generative artists. In these times of economic uncertainty especially, art and expression through creative means can be cost prohibitive.
“I remember when Adobe Photoshop was relatively new, and artists said it wasn’t real art. As someone with a background and education in traditional art, I thought digital art was “cheating.” I was wrong,” they add. “I regret never learning the tools to transition to digital art. Generative art has given me the tools to create art again.”
Everyone is Welcome in the Library
“I try to convey my awe and respect for the human desire to accumulate and share knowledge. Libraries are shrines for words. If I can express even a fraction of the love I have for being surrounded by books, I’ll consider myself successful,” they say of their art.
And each piece speaks right to the creator’s soul.
“I want to learn as much as possible.”
We love Libraryscapes’ long term plans the most, “to continue creating.”
“It’s been amazing watching generative art evolve since I started in July 2022. I’m excited to see what the future brings,” they add.
“It’s easy to get discouraged, especially on social media,” they add. “Navigating the world of follows and likes can be exhausting. Sharing my libraries has helped me step outside my comfort zone and meet a lot of amazing people. It’s okay to do your own thing. Just keep doing what you love and don’t worry about the numbers.”

So nice to read about such a wonderful artist. The collaboration we did together a while ago led to some beautiful images. I was honored to work with such an amazing artist.
