A DIYer who goes by the named of Ogel (“Lego” spelled backwards) recreated the original “splash page” illustration we did when we first launched DIY…entirely out of duct tape. When asked how long it took him to create this scene, he responds: ”This took me about 25 hours over the course of 3 weeks.  Thanks everyone!”

Thank you, Ogel - we’re honored!

 The Pixel Painter

Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.

Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.
