In this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards interviews an artist using an unlikely tool: MS Paint. Microsoft Paint isn’t known as the best artistic tool. But Pat Hines used it to create the illustrations for his horror fantasy, Camp Redblood. And the results are incredible.
He explains how Microsoft Paint works for him, and includes notes about his favorite artists, like Herge, Ivan Bilibin, and more. He also shows why he prefers Paint to Photoshop and Illustrator and how it created his unique artistic style. This speedpaint is a reflection of years of labor.
