These Comics Write Themselves

February 17, 2014 | Andy Cush

Natalie Dee, creator of the aptly named Natalie Dee comics and one half of the team behind Married to the Sea, created Natalie Dee Machine, a bot that automatically generates comics in her distinctive style. No word on how exactly it’s done, but I’d imagine Dee pre-created a bunch of illustrations and the bot Markov-chains through words, phrases, and punctuation marks she uses in her actual work. The results are surreal single-panel affairs like the “bratwurst festival” comic above. See some more we generated in the gallery.
