My creations were nothing like Hal Lasko’s.
This 98 year old man creates beautiful pieces of art, one pixel at a time. This retired typographer nicknamed Grandpa has a strong devotion to his art process. He spends hours each day sitting at his computer painting pixels until his work is complete, then sees it through to completion through the printing process. Why? Because it’s fun.
It’s no longer work, it’s fun. When I worked I always had to do something to please the client.
The most beautiful thing about his story confirms that, just because you retire doesn’t mean you stop living life. It’s when you start. You have the freedom to do what you want, when you want, for how long you want, and if you can channel those wants into a creative outlet there’s nothing that can stop you. That is how I want to live my life, before and after retirement.
Grandpa, you’re a complete inspiration.
