97-Year-Old Creates Amazing Pixel Artworks Using MS Paint

Can you believe these artworks are done by a 97 year-old grandfather and he is partially vision impaired?

Hal Lasko, fondly known as Hal or Grandpa, a former graphic designer, draftsman in the Army and typographer, creates these magnificent art pieces using only a mouse and MS Paint… on Windows 95! He was first introduced to the software by his family, long after he retired.

While many professional graphic designers will never consider MS Paint to be the preferred tool for creating great artwork, Hal proved that, with the simplest tool and a little creativity, you can create wonders.

His work, described as a “collision of pointillism and 8-Bit art”, has recently been on show in an art exhibition. Prints of his work can also be bought on his website.

And now we have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
Bing, bang, boom and now you have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Google finally unveiled a new version of Android hours ago at an event in San Francisco. Surely this is not much of a surprise since the upgrade has been rumoured for the past few weeks and then came along Best Buy to confirm it hours before it was announced.

If you’re a just another smartphone user and don’t know much about Android updates, fret not, you’re not missing out much; although the update does come with some pretty neat new features for the geeky ones.

All you need to know is that Google is making Android smoother and faster in Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Whether there’s a need to upgrade, it all depends on your devices. If you’re not sure about it, just let it be and stick to your current Android OS. Chances are, you’ll be having a new smartphone by mid next year.
