The Pixel Painter

Meet Hal Lasko, 97 year old retired graphic designer, who spends his days making art on MS Paint. Pixelites … prepare to have your heart’s melt … video embedded below:

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.

Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

Hal also has a website where you can see more of his works, which you can find here

Reblogging this today as today would have been his 99th birthday (he sadly died in July the 6th this year). He even had a Tumblr blog, hallasko.

RIP Hal Lasko

George RR Martin? Forget him. George W. Bush is one of the greatest fiction writers of all time. He fabricates an Al Qaeda threat to justify invading Iraq in 2003 and a little over a decade later we have ISIS, a real threat born from the fiction George W. was supposedly combatting. Simply brilliant.
