Longtime iclock.com supporter and dear friend Earl emailed a question, "Can a computed intelligence assistant predict and compose John Simon's next daily drawing in a series?"

Thank you for a great question, Earl. So much to unpack! I don't think of them as my daily drawings since software is involved but it is possible to create a Simon/software series of images as original work. Automated composition is possible. Stable diffusion software can generate original, coherent images that use the history of iclock as a database. Saying that the software is predicting a series is tricky because my drawings are improvisational. I can't tell you what I will draw each day until it is drawn. The software does something similar when deriving images from noise.
