When I read that MS Paint is officially dead now, it made me look back at a time when I frantically drew on MS Paint every day on a mechanical mouse.

I drew with ms-paint from 2002 until 2008 and made 250 ms paintings in total. It filled my High school days with joy.

The digital paintings are a mixture between the vibrant fantasy I had as a young child, and the anxiety and heart aches of my teenage years.

I think the limited functionality of the software and limitations of drawing with a mechanical mouse where a good thing because it challenged my creativity.
