typewriter art by Paul Smith♦

The art in this slideshow was created by a man with Cerebral Palsy named Paul Smith. Each picture was created by Paul on his typewriter.

"When typing, Paul used his left hand to steady his right one. Since he couldn't press two keys at the same time, he almost always locked the shift key down and made his pictures using the symbols at the top of the number keys. In other words, his pictures were based on these characters .... @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ ."

Paul died last year, leaving behind some wonderful works of art and a legacy of courage, determination, and talent.
