I'm wondering what to do next. The idea of creating more inventory for the sake of same doesn't make sparks. I could take advantage of lessening demand and play with new mediums, new ideas, new processes... maybe just go back to basics and hone my drawing skills, focus more on watercolor sketches... there are plenty of opportunities for self fulfillment while still maintaining the business end.
My hope is that the career will take as long to wind down as it did to rev up. That would give me another ten/twenty years in the business ;-) and I wouldn't have to work nearly as hard on the down side of the mountain as I did on the climbing side. But this wobbly economy may have other ideas... hope this isn't a slippery slope!
