I know you didn't believe me, having been gone so long, that I'd be back shortly with some more art edd-y goodness. Today I bring you an interesting Kickstarter project - a documentary about the history of a pastel company in France. Full disclosure- the filmmaker is a former student of mine. Check out her project at her Roche Documentary Kickstarter page, and (if you are so inclined) show her some love with a small donation to get her project going!
I'm not much of a pastel enthusiast myself, but this looks pretty cool! Good luck, Leah!
