The Pixel Painter

An inspiring true story of a 97-year-old Grandpa and his pixel paintings. My heart has melted.

"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."
