Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, was born 70 years before MS Paint was ever created. He used to work as a graphic artist, but it was back when everything was done by hand. He knew how to create works of art, but by using his hands. Then, his family introduced him to Microsoft Paint. Now, Grandpa spends countless hours adding little pinpricks of color to a formerly blank canvas. His work is a combination of pointillism and 8-Bit art. You have to see it for yourself.

Hal is known as Grandpa, but also the Pixel Painter.

He spends hours creating these masterpieces.

As a graphic artist, he used to create work for his clients.

But now, he is just drawing for himself. He has the patience and the passion to dedicate to these works of art.

He draws them for himself, each pixel lovingly placed.

He has even been featured in art shows. People can't get enough of Grandpa's work.
