Watch This Mini Documentary about a 97-Year-Old Pixel Artist

Jack Gardner


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create brilliant works of art pixel by pixel? No? Well, that is what one man has been doing decades after his retirement.


Hal Lasko, or Grandpa as he is better known, reinvented himself several years ago when his family introduced him to, of all things, Microsoft Paint. Now he spends hours every day creating amazing 8-bit artwork. This is made even more incredible when you learn that Grandpa’s vision is almost completely shot. 



"Do you know I do a lot of my painting with my eyes shut? I've jumped up out of bed and went to the computer to see if I could do what I dreamed I could do." - Hal Lasko


I hope that I can be as cool as Grandpa someday.
