Jeff Scher used PanPastel Colors for most of the backgrounds when he created the artwork for two recent videos. “The Number on Great-Grandpa’s Arm” (HBO) and “The President Sang Amazing Grace” (Joan Baez).
The following is a behind the scenes video for the HBO documentary, showing Jeff’s process. PanPastel features at 2:00 in the video. The finished video can be seen here: hbo.com/documentaries/

Artist Q&A: Benjamin Ward
My grandfather was a painter, illustrator, and professor. I grew up sitting on his lap watching him draw. It fascinated me. I had an amazing (and patient, ha) art teacher in high school that nurtured my abilities and helped me create a portfolio that was awarded several scholarships to major art schools.
