After several months of very part time work I have the demo live at www.artwerks.io/demo. Artwerks is an AI driven art discovery platform. The demo is a short intro to what art collectors will experience when they use the platform to find new art. I used well known art in the public domain for the demo, so there are only a few pieces.
Now that the demo is live, I plan to reach out to artists that I have connect with on Instagram to get their initial feedback and see if they want to serve as beta testers. I've spent the past couple of months sharing art on behalf of artists, so hopefully that earns me a little bit of goodwill with them.
Couldn’t get https to work with my prior setup, so I ended up building a new landing page. I ended up leveraging a landing page for an old project for this one - then put it into my MVP Rails app and deployed via Heroku. Thankfully the domain https with Heroku’s ACN seems to be holding up now and I can get back to finishing the rest of the MVP.
Got the landing page up for my newest side project at www.artwerks.io. Think Tinder for art - but as you like more and more art it will use a “you might also like” algorithm to make suggestions. I used canva.com to make a simple logo and carrd.co to make the landing page. I’ve started work on the MVP as well, and will use Instagram to find initial artists.
