The Yoda Crossover Collection

The Yoda Crossover Collection was a lot of fun to make. The visual art was created using a combination of Dream Woomba, Adobe photoshop, Midjourney, and Dall-E. We used the character Yoda to test what stories the Chat GPT had been pre-trained on because we’d found it knew Star Wars characters.
