A machine-learning model trained on 8+ years of my personal travel sketches, then drawn with my converted pen plotter. 

I trained a machine learning model on the past eight years of my travel sketches. Sketching is my way of recording the places I've been, and especially how I felt at the time. 

Part 1: Creating the machine learning model

The original training sketches were sourced from my Instagram and personal storage.

Part 2: Drawing in Real Life
I took one of the generated images, Live Traced it in Illustratrator, and then had my modified vinyl cutter draw it with different pens. Each one of these took maybe 10 minutes to set up and then 2-4 minutes to draw.
