Some artists showed their drawing skills by using pencils, pens, or paint for art. Among them, Tatsuo Horiuchi is different from them because he creates masterpieces in Microsoft Excel. Horiuchi is eighty years old Japanese artist who started painting after retirement. What he wanted was a new challenge for life. Instead of spending money on paintings, Horiuchi developed his PC but didn’t try any digital drawing software. He tried only the Microsoft excel skills to draw some beautiful scenarios.
“I didn’t expect it [my painting] to improve immediately, so I made a 10-year plan, “For the first three years, I concentrated on ‘drawing’ and drew all the things that could be seen, such as vegetables such as carrots and Japanese radish, and wild grass, in Excel. For the next three years, I practiced combining the motifs one by one to construct a painting.”, Horiuchi elaborates the story.
