  • Feb 13 2012: Hello Janet.
    If intense research and development was required to develop products and a lot of time passes with several hurdles faced... when do you think, should artists/designers get their designs/products out there in the world... rather than spending longer and longer time chasing the unattainable "perfection" at the start?
    Where do you define the line?
    Thank you for doing this!
