Typewriter artist

Some of you may have seen this on Facebook, but I thought it was very inspiring and wanted to share with those of you who hadn't seen it.  This clip shows a man named Paul Smith who is severely disable with cerebral palsy.  He's lived in a nursing home for many years.  He creates amazing art using a typewriter.   Check out this clip - you'll be impressed!

Wow...

I remember back in high school one girl could make art from using the letters on the keyboard....I remember the one she did of Abraham Lincoln...

But her work is NOTHING compared to this man's.

Hi Mari, just catching up now I am back, I have been reading just not commenting. This work is just amazing isn't it. How wonderful that he doesn't let anything stop him from creating and in this unusual way as well, it makes it even better. xx

I've never seen this. Awesome! Just awesome! I'm so glad you shared this, Mari. It makes me smile and makes me miss my nursing home residents. I have got to get back there and visit.
