Dinosaurio or AI Drawings Of Dinosaurs With Jobs, also known as Dinoprofesiones, refers to a series of AI-generated drawings of dinosaurs in different human professions, like doctors, firemen, journalists and other professionals. The trend was popularized in January of 2023 by the Instagram page @the_ai_dreams and inspired discussions and parodies of it on social media.


On January 29th, 2023, Instagram[1] user @the_ai_dreams shared a collection of AI art titled "Dinosaurs at work part 1" featuring small animals dressed in the uniforms of a fireman, a trucker, a musician, a bartender and many other professions. The images were created using the Midjourney[2] artificial intelligence tool and received 5,689 likes in one month (seen below).

The post garnered 7,504 likes and 1,127 retweets in a week (seen below).

To people complaing about "A.I. generated X" memes, remember the ever redundant Advice Animals, challenges that weren't challenges, non-troversies, hashtag memes, and many many more?

KYM is no stranger to meme fads and trends taking root every so often; the others passed and so will this, given enough time. At least this fad produces some nice visuals every now and again.
