But finally, and thankfully, I have come to the end of the binge. I have only one toy design left to finish for this session, though I have a heap of excellent drawings waiting in line for the next round, something went click and I knew I could now take a deep breath.
Over the last 2 1/2 months I've been able to watch the development of my style and come to understand it, observe it and appreciate it. And I finally have a feel of just how Flying Star Toys fits into the broad road of designer toys. It's only taken me nearly 3 years but since my work didn't fit into an easy niche it has been a test of my endurance. In the end just sticking with it and following one's own ball of string as it snakes out of the labyrinth works very well.
I hope you'll see what I mean about the Flying Star Toys style bit more over the coming weeks.
