Watch: The Pixel Painter

Well. Well, shit. Look at this. This is Hal Lasko, 97 (ninety seven, ninety seven years old). He has lived for almost a century and he’s suffering from a terrible illness called Wet Macular Degeneration, which means the center of his vision is basically non-existent. But he hasn’t let that stop him from creating the most brilliant pixellated masterpieces, using nothing more than Microsoft Paint.

This video is utterly heartwarming. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to force my grandmother to learn MS Paint marvel at Hal’s work a little more. And you should too.
