Microsoft Surface 2 Launch

What better way to launch the Microsoft Surface 2 than a party featuring Deadmau5 in Toronto? Microsoft chose to feature their Fresh Paint application at the event, providing an interactive experience which allowed users to share their artwork using the Surface 2 with partygoers via a 50ft projection at the venue.

 

 

Hal Lasko, the Pixel Painter

A common aphorism in design and art is that the last 10% of a work takes 90% of the project time, and is the most important to the product.

Despite a form of blindness which blurs the centre of his vision, Hal Lasko has been tending to a high level of detail for the last 15 years in his Pointillism-style art.

The level of realism achieved in ‘Looking Up’ is certainly impressive, comparable to Group of Seven works in my opinion. Even more interesting to me was the fact that all his works are created using MS Paint.
