Can't reach that itch in the middle of your back? Can't get that jar of pickles open? And you ran out of kitty litter again?

Never fear, as I have created everyday superheroes that fight real everyday problems, such as when you realize that you don't have change for the parking meter. No worries, Change-For-The-Parking-Meter Man is on the job!

Coffee Woman always shows up at 3 pm. Fabric Softener Man fights to keep Static Electricity Man at bay, although he's usually easy to spot as he has a pesky balloon or two always stuck to him.

I'm an award-winning photojournalist and wildlife photographer based in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. I primarily work for www.BarrieToday.com and I have been in the news business since 2005. It's nice to create something fantastical and fictional after a hard day's work capturing the real world around me.

Visit my previous post here on Bored Panda, where I used AI to see Dog Puns coming to life.

In general, I love creating, and this new tech (AI) has improved so much in the past year that I'm basically only limited by my imagination.

I don't really doodle much when I'm bored or thinking about my next work assignment, like many people do, so I find myself playing with AI imagery nowadays. I could get on a creative roll and make a set in just a few hours, or it could be something that I pick away at when I can over a few days or a week. There is a lot of tweaking of the word prompts and "re-rolling", as it's called, to get them how I want to look.

I'm not a fan of "real" superheroes and I don't watch the movies, but there is a need for everyday first-world-problem solvers that can do it in style. I've always been a daydreamer, just as much now as when I was a little kid bored in class. My imagination seems to take me anywhere I want to go, which I love.

My favorite superhero is Teacher Woman, as my wife is an elementary school teacher, and I'm always proud of what she does. She was born to teach. I do like ones that are a bit "out there", so my second choice would have to be Change-For-The-Parking Meter Man. I never remember to carry coins with me.

In the future, I am planning on more series. For now, I just have no idea where it will take me, but the more silly and far-fetched, the better.

People say that these AI creations are not art, and that's a valid argument, but what is art anyway? I don't think it has to be defined by the use of a paintbrush or pencil. All have the same thing in common: imagination. AI prompts are just another tool to express that imagination. I wrote a column recently about this very thing.

Can fold a fitted sheet like it’s brand new. Can also put fitted sheets on a bed without ever having to rearrange it so the corners fit correctly. My hero!
