Franz Thues and Dirk König AKA Anarchy Alchemy are two art directors based in Düsseldorf, Germany. They make pictures harnessing the magic of generative design. All of their illustrations are generated by programs they write for each specific illustration series, allowing them to create a potentially endless stream of pictures on the press of a button.
