Hal Lasko is a 97-year-old Grandfather creating pixel artwork that literally transcends time through the use of archaic technology like Microsoft Paint on a Windows 95 platform. What's even more amazing about this immutable artist is that he's also legally blind and a veteran of World War II.
It's hard enough creating original pieces of art using the modern technology currently afforded to graphic designers, let alone using essentially extinct technology. There are so many amazing ways to look at this story, whether it's an elderly man finding a new passion at the ripe age of 80, or the idea of threading artistic interpretation through the use of out-of-date programs. Lasko was introduced to Microsoft Paint by his family well into his retirement, and he's never looked back.
The touching documentary explains the entire story in a compelling way that truly brings to light the idea that creativity never dies. In life there are many paths to take and it's important to remember that age doesn't diminish those paths, it just pushes you harder to take that first step. Hal Lasko and his pixel artwork is an inspiration to everyone to live life to the fullest.
