The concepts of repeating, remembering and recreating that came out of the process of making Fall of the House Usher, as well as the shadow of all of this, decay, was something that I wanted to further explore. I created a second training set, but this time drawing the images  generated by the GAN.  Drawing these was incredibly difficult - the logic of the world is there but not quite there (shadows are not quite right, twists in fabric do not hang as expected). Style in drawing always evolves but because I drew in this style for so long, it has changed how I now draw and paint a picture. I now start to add in artefacts and my line has changed.
