Patrick Hines' graphic novel "Camp Redblood and The Essential Revenge" goes to show that given enough time, you can do pretty much anything with the most rudimentary of tools. Short of cracking open a hex editor and inputting the RGB values yourself, Microsoft's Paint is as basic as it gets to creating art.

Go to your emoji keyboard on your phone.
You'll find a clown, a snowman, a taco and a turtle - but you won't find an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander flag among the 253 others available for use. This is despite constant campaigning to unicode (who decides on which emojis are released) to make one available. Often you'll see people use as a substitute.

I'm not joking when I say the Microsoft Surface Studio makes this sentence — pulled from the incredible video that Microsoft wrote to promote its new super-luxury, all-in-one PC, in the words of Willy Wonka's fantasies — come true. When you get face to face with the Surface Studio, and when you see what it can do, you can't help but think of all the possibilities of what you can do with it. It's incredible.
Our smartphones are pretty handy navigation tools, but fiddling with them while you're driving is not ideal. That's why every responsible driver should invest in a mount to keep their mitts on the wheel and far, far away from their phone.
