But I thought it might be quite useful for those who have followed my blog on the strength of those posts to read this from Jonathan from Mr Yen who today wrote on his blog that after taking the plunge and going part-time at his day job last year, he is now going back into full-time work.
He talks about how some people may believe this is a backward step, which is something that I could understand why he’d say that, though I didn’t believe was true. I think it takes the pressure off to be continually producing work which perhaps isn’t as detailed or elaborate as he’d like to focus on at the moment and I think it’s really great that he’s been so open about it. It is, realistically, no one’s business why he’s doing it, but it’s good that others perhaps in the same boat and thinking they’d be failing somehow to do so might be reassured that everyone has these same concerns and worries. Too often the word of indie craft and design feels like a giant game of one-upmanship, so honest and earthy posts like this really gladden my heart.
