The Pixel Painter: 97-Year Old Retired Graphic Designer Makes Beautiful Paintings In MS-Paint Pixel By Pixel

July 25, 2013


This is The Pixel Painter, a cute/sweet/heartwarming documentary about Hal Lasko, a 97-year old retired graphic designer who's partially blind and spends up to 10-hours a day creating beautiful art pieces in Microsoft Paint, pixel by pixel. When I retire? I'm not creating anything but a mess for the people at the nursing home to clean up. *flinging Jello at the wall* I hate my kids.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots of Hal's work and the video, and you can actually buy prints of his pieces HERE.





Thanks to E V I L A R E S and Tina, who love cute old people almost as much as they love cute people their own age.

    Amazing talent this gentleman has. This was a really sweet video.

  • FAKE!!!!

    This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

    This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max and Baja were collecting hash tags, and then smoked them in a cardboard box in the back of Del tacos. Later they ate a half gallon of bacon flavored ice cream.

    The video goes far deeper into the FEELS region, I teared up near the end.

    I mean, shoot...sometimes you get used to the media/medium that you have available. Not everyone can afford photoshop. This guy is awesome!
