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.

The 'pixel painter' quickly caught the attention of director Josh Bogdon who documented Lasko's story of discovering a new career well into his 80s.
