Blind ‘Grandpa’ Makes Wonderful Art Using MS Paint

Hal Lasko digital6 Hal Lasko digital7

Hal Lasko, affectionately called ‘grandpa’, creates amazing art pixel by pixel in MS Paint.  Lasko worked for years as a typographer creates fonts by hand.  Though now 98 years old and suffering from Wet Macular Degeneration – an affliction that causes blindness in his center of vision – Lasko never stopped being an artist.  He was introduced to MS Paint by his grandsons and took to the program quickly.  MS Paint allows Lasko to “zoom in” on his pieces and work a small part at a time, pixel by pixel.  The process is laborious and time-consuming but works perfectly for Lasko, a patient artist.  Check out the video to see a short but touching documentary on the artist and his work.
