The Painted Pixel

I came about this video called The Pixel Painter about Hal Lasko, a 98-year old man who uses MS Paint to create beautiful illustrations since his degenerating eyesight stopped him from being able to paint on canvases anymore. Hal was a typographer by trade and the influence of other mid-century illustrators is clear in his work. It’s a really sweet piece and impossible to not be charmed by watching Hal himself.

Watch the full video here–

Prints of Hal Lasko’s work are available on his website, too. via Wired.
