Passion and Work and Adulthood

TWIDI will celebrate its 10th birthday in March. A few months after, it'll be callupish's 16th birthday. That's how long these two passion projects have been with me. Currently, both of them are on the backburner. There's a thought loitering in my head for the past two years. The thought of how my relationship with art has changed since it became a career. Don't get me wrong. I'm still able to find the love and joy that fuel my art-making. So far I've kept as true as possible to what speaks to me most, as a young adult and an artist.

Question: the cliche of a villain wanting world domination- did that exist much pre-WW1? I don't mean like "me and my army shall slowly expand our empire by fighting wars and deposing rulers etc" I mean a general "I personally will take over the world through my cunning plan"

What's going on with global supply chains? (aka "why are we running out of everthing," "why is shipping so slow," "why are things more expensive"). A link roundup thread:
