Remember back in 2015 when Google's DeepDream showed us how AI sees the world? Principally as stoner-peacock-feather-eyeball-cascade-from-Hellraiser? Well, thanks to TensorFlow -- Google's open-source machine learning tech -- we have something even more wonderful (and possibly weirder) to enjoy in 2017: Pix2Pix.

Inspired by Edges2Cats, Pix2Pix uses image-to-image tech to turn line art into a photo. It basically establishes a relationship between a given set of images and a drawing. Wielding crazy math (or magic), it gives a user the ability to draw whatever they want into a box, then process it into a photo-realistic image presented in another box. Edges2Cats creator Christopher Hesse actually created several flavors of these mind-bending modules and THEY ARE ALL WILD. So wild that, naturally, we had to try them on some GoComics stars. Apologies to all of our celebrated cartoonists. What I've done, I've done for science.
