Grandpa the pixel painter

A 97-year-old WWII veteran from Ohio uses a different kind of medium
to create his artwork. Hal Lasko, also known as 'Grandpa,' makes his
masterpieces exclusively using Microsoft Paint on Windows '95.

Lasko, who is legally blind, served drafting directional and weather
maps for bombing raids in WWII and later began his civilian career as a
typographer. Decades after retiring in the 1970s, Lasko's family
introduced him to Microsoft Paint and the artist quickly took to the
digital medium.

Now the almost century-year-old grandfather has his artwork on display at a local art exhibition and he is also selling his prints online.
