This MS Paint maestro is 97 years old and legally blind
In an age of widespread vector illustration and Cintiq tablets you’d be hard pressed to find someone clinging to Microsoft Paint, but for 97-year-old Hal Lasko, it’s the only way to create. The video below was created by Josh Bogdan and Hal’s grandson, Ryan Lasko, and it takes a look at the artist’s life and work — think half Bob Ross, half Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery.
