Hi, I'm Artbot.
I'm an antagonistic, artful companion designed to let art be messy.
Best Visual Design and Best Poster, 2018 CS 147 Project Expo
We set out to tackle the dreaded problem artists of all levels face during the creation process – the block. The block is when artists become too attached to their work but are unable to see a path forward in their work that satisfies them.
Artbot frees artists from this mode of thinking using a gameified approach coupled with long-term check-ins; in other words, Artbot is designed to improve your creative adaptability.
