Imagine you were #deaf and #blind but an amazing #artist…

Every now and then I feel the need to share a fabulous piece of PR, Marketing or marketing campaign. This just had to be shared. I felt inspired watching this film and I know you will too!

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired. Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

Meet 97-year-old Hal Lasko, The Pixel Painter. See more work here.

This lovely man was a typographer, in ‘his day’ (which actually means nothing, because people have many ‘days’ right? – Hal certainly has!)

He spent a lifetime with art, then lost his eyesight and thought he would never ‘paint’ again. Thanks to 8 bit Art, he can. Watch the legendary tribute below…
