Meet Tatsuoa Horiuchi, 77 year old Japanese man, who created this amazingly detailed paintings in a software you least expected to – MS Excel. This artist was interested in graphics design for a while, but only after retiring 17 years ago, he found enough time to do what he always wanted.

Perhaps the most interesting, all the files are available for download:
