'Camp Redblood and the Essential Revenge' is the work of Pat Hines

A surgeon's steady hand, the patience of a saint and a dollop of creative genius: these are the qualities required to be a sensei of MS Paint.

Pat Hines has spent the last ten years of his life drawing a graphic novel with MS Paint. 'Paint’s simplicity and limitations are what I enjoy the most about it. I like the idea that you don’t need an expensive programme or materials to create something that’s nice to look at,' the self-taught artist told Microsoft New England.

Hines found Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and other advanced illustrating tools too complicated to use. For a decade, Pat Hines filled quiet times while working nights at a hospital reception desk by illustrating an ambitious graphic novel. 

The artist used the platform Deviant Art to upload his art and to document his process step by step.

His e-book, Camp Redblood and the Essential Revenge, is a story about a summer camp in the 1980s. His illustrations have gone viral thanks to the unique method of their creation and the remarkable results achieved.
