Im┬Ěpersonal is a generative art project that creates generative procedural drawings on its own and updates its own drawing blog.

Instead of generating graphics from building visualizations of mathematical and physics models, im┬Ěpersonal generates drawings following a slow and painful self-supervised thinking process, drawing stroke after stroke onto the canvas, and always keeping an eye on its creation to decide when to call it done.

The program was built on the reverse of most generative computer graphics artwork or simulation programs that creates realistic graphics, instead of creating visually stunning graphics based on intensive computational power, it is trying to simulate human drawing in a very low-level approach of recreating emotion and gestures.
