You Won’t Believe What This 98-Year-Old Uses to Make His Incredible Art

Aleteia - published on 02/27/14 - updated on 06/07/17

Hint: nearly all of us have used it before, but we never took it seriously...

98-year-old Hal Lasko is a retired graphic artist, back from the days when things were done by hand. About a decade ago, his family got him a computer and showed him a program almost all of us have used before, but that’s changed his life ever since: Microsoft Paint.

This incredible documentary that tells his story and shares some of his beautiful work is just about 8 minutes – great for quick coffee break. Enjoy!

You can learn more about Hal Lasko, including how to buy some of his work, at his personal website
