The End of an Era

Despite winning MikeDiDonato.com’s prestigious “Best Digital Art Program Ever” award for over 20 years straight, Microsoft is rumored to be eradicating Microsoft Paint from windows in the upcoming upgrade.

Admittedly, since the disappointing upgrade for Windows 10 that removed so much functionality by adding features, MSPaint has been in a sad downward spiral. The only uplifting part of the news was the plethora of emails, texts and phone calls that I received from friends and family sending their condolences to me. In fact, I think more people offered their sympathies on reading about MSPaint than celebratory messages offered on my Wedding day. Ha!

Thank you to all for your solemn offerings of support in this troubled time.

Perhaps we will take a trip down memory lane and explore a few of the most glorious MSPaintings that have graced this website since its debut so many years ago. It’s perhaps most appropriate to start with Cupcakezilla – Drawn by Roland in England as part of an MSPaint contest. It was one of very few designs that ever transitioned from MSPaint to Silk Screen. An epic display of pixelation.

    Maybe a weeklong montage of some of your MS Paint projects is in order. I’m thinking Battle Ponies and maybe your MSpaint only recreation of famous art.
