There has a been an explosion of new artists and game developers. Is that because of the lock down? I also noticed lots of them have interests in opensource such as blender and godot. Another starving artist.
The data Bart shared showed what appeared to be a huge jump in Blender interest last Spring (because computer stuff is one of the few productive things many were even allowed to do during the lockdowns), but the number of prospective users tailed off as countries and states started to reopen.
Now, you again have regions where most businesses are shuttered and one US city at least made its lockdown indefinite, I wouldn’t be surprised people are again trying to find new hobbies since the state locked them out of their usual ones.
