The Pixel Painter // by Josh Bogdan & Ryan Lasko

“When I lost my eyesight, I thought that my painting days were over”.  

A touching and uplifting portrait from Ryan Lasko and Josh Bogdan about Ryan’s grandfather, Hal, who worked as a graphic designer before computers were utilized in the industry.  After being diagnosed with blindness in the center of his vision, he turned to Microsoft Paint as a way to overcome his medical limitations.  Hal’s youthful spirit shines through his vibrant Pixel Paintings- where he thinks the pixilation- is the best part.  The title of his newest creation, Space Highways, is a reflection of Hal’s ability to embrace the future and to happily step into the unknown.
