Guy Who Doesn’t Know Photoshop, Spends 10 Years Using Microsoft Paint to Illustrate Book

These days, a lot of people prefer using Photoshop over Microsoft Paint, especially because the photo editing software offers plenty of features that could make stunning effects out of the simplest things.

But one guy who don’t know Photoshop and couldn’t understand the software decided to master using Paint for 10 years – and illustrated his book using Paint! Whoa!

I suck at Photoshop and other programs, and have worked exclusively in Microsoft Paint for over ten years… I honed my craft working long overnights at a hospital reception desk…” Pat Hines said.

Hines created a novel he entitled, “Camp Redblood And The Essential Revenge”. This book is about a teenage camp filled with ghosts and monsters.

Set in the 1980s, the book tells the story of a camp “and filled with goofy campers and counselors, where the teenagers are always trying to get drunk or laid.”

As expected, the teenagers love getting into trouble.

They also get into war with rival camps. They would try to break into these rival camps “to carry out elaborate revenge schemes…”

While the story seems to appear as a stereotype about teens, not just in the 1980s, people were more amazed with the fact that the book was illustrated using Paint. Many were even skeptic that someone could make such elaborate pictures using Paint! Can you believe it?

Well, Hines understands that people won’t believe him. So, he created detailed instructions on his Deviantart page – and you can zoom in on the photos to see the minute details for yourself.

A hardworking man who went to a World Balance outlet at a mall to buy shoes from his savings received much-needed help from a kind-hearted customer who realized he should be rewarded for his efforts.

In a post that has since gone viral on Facebook, a store associate at World Balance shared the heartwarming story.

According to Caloy Pineda, the man who was later identified as Kuya Rexel, entered their store and began choosing from the shoes on sale. He didn’t look rich but the store associates readily assisted him, anyway.

Caloy described him as an obviously hardworking man who seemed really excited to finally buy a pair of new shoes from his hard-earned money. Finally, Kuya Rexel settled for a pair worth Php1,200 ($23.80).

While the staff prepared the shoes he chose, he took out his money and began to count it on the bench. He had a bunch of money, all Php20 bills ($0.40). It was obvious that the money came from his savings as many were still folded up.

It was at this point that another customer, a woman who goes by the name Lilliam Matteo Quiat on Facebook, went closer and began asking Kuya Rexel random questions like where he was working. She praised him for being hardworking and offered to give him some cash so he could choose another pair that he would really like to have.

Kuya Rexel was hesitant as he didn’t want to take her money but she insisted. After some coaxing, Kuya Rexel finally chose another pair he was eyeing; it costs Php1,799 ($35.65). The woman gave the store associates Php500 ($9.90) and went away without telling them her name.

But according to Caloy, he was able to take some photos and got her name because she reserved a pair of shoes at the store. She would have remained anonymous and certainly didn’t give the money for praise but she was later happy to hear that the story became an inspiration to many after it went viral.

May we remind you about the most dangerous selfies that have been posted? Or do you want to read about the man who lost his life because he wanted a selfie with a walrus? Or what about the guy who accidentally killed himself because he wanted a selfie with an unpinned grenade? See, the list is endless.

Adding to that list is this young woman from Indonesia who were taking photos with her friends near the train tracks in Purworejo on December 6.

Hayati was quickly rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery in order to stop her bleeding.

Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.

The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.

May this incident serve as a warning to those who are taking their selfies. Remember that no matter how “cool” your selfie is, it won’t matter much if you are not alive and well.

We have heard incredible stories where taxi, Grab and Uber drivers are being good samaritans.

Recently, another Grab driver is earning praise as he defied all traffic rules and all odds, as you may, just so he can bring his rider to St. Lukes Hospital in BGC.

In a Facebook post of Andrea Venice Yuson that PhilStar shared, she recalled how the Grab driver that she and her mom rode on the way to the hospital was nice enough to speed up and defy traffic lights, just so he can bring his rider to the hospital on time.

She posted how the driver did everything he could when he found out that Yuson’s mom was not feeling well.

“Pag akyat sa Market Market, talagang binubusinahan niya lahay ng nasa harap niya kahit naka stop traffic light.”

The driver blew his horn so that the other vehicles will give way to them and know that it is an emergency.

“Bandang BGC na kami busina padin siya ng busina binuksan niya yung bintana niya sinesenyasan niya yung mga gusto pang mauna kesa sakanya tas nagagalit siya di kami makadaan kasi sabe niya ’emergency nga e'”

Yuson also shared how the driver seemed affected and nervous, he even looked back at the mom and asked if she is still ok.

“Kita sa mukha niya nagagalit, nagaalala, sabay sabing, ‘pinagpapawisan ako, kaya niyo pa ba ma’am?'”

When they reached the traffic light, the driver beat the red light and also told the other driver that was trying to go ahead that this is an emergency.

“Binreak niya yung traffic light, e may dadaan kasi naka-go yung isa, sabi niya ‘sige mahuli ka emergency nga to eh, wala akong pakielam sainyo kahit magaway pa tayo.”

Because of the driver’s efforts, they were able to reach the hospital and Yuson’s mom was taken care of. When she tried to pay the driver, he refused and said that she should just take care of her mom.

“Unahin mo muna mama mo, tulungan mo muna siya.”

In the end, even when her mom told her to run after the driver so she can pay, the driver still did not accept the payment.
