I'd like to share something I came across with you guys. I've mentioned my little problem in other posts. I am a total art supply geek. I've also mentioned earlier that I've recently gotten into charcoal. The charcoal I've been using - some of which I've had since high school, some of which I've had for about four years is really beautiful but it's pretty run-of-the-mill material.
So I stumbled across this video and being the geek I am, I'm going to go online some time this week and order me a bunch of this. While the video is impressive in itself, I found out that Juliette Aristides uses this stuff - that's good enough for me!! I'll let you know how it works out.
If any of you have experience with it, I'd love to hear from you.
