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
person : why do you draw everything facing left in 3/4 view
me : im a right handed mediocre artist
I read an article the other day that said that all humans, regardless of culture, age, or training, prefer to draw the left side of the face in 3/4 view because it’s easier to identify the emotions on the left side of the face than on the right side of the face.
So you’re not a shitty artist—you’re a human?
My new favorite gif set.
