It’s always a beautiful thing to see people creating something whether it’s music, acting or art. Sometimes it’s especially endearing when you see two worlds collide so to speak.
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.
Meet 97-year-old Hal Lasko, The Pixel Painter.
Meanwhile, I can barely draw stick figures in MS Paint. Seriously though, this is the most touching eight minute documentary you’ll ever see. You can check out his website here, hallasko.com
