Ask Me Anything: Finding My Art Style

I get this species of art question so often that I now think it's worth making a blog post to answer it (for posterity). The question usually goes something like this:

"How did you find your style of art?"

Ten Years Later

On March 31st, 2013, I published the first ever page of my webcomic, officially debuting The World in Deeper Inspection.


I was 18 then: fresh out of SPM, and at the start of my gap half-year. While my friends and schoolmates almost immediately transitioned into Pre-U Lyfe (A-Levels, IB, STPM, ADP - wow those names sound so irrelevant now) I was adamant about getting a few months off - not to travel since I didn't have the money then lol, but to work on my passion project: an artsy, ambitious magnum-opus webcomic about a Jersey Devil detective and his friends.

An Essay from a Grieving, Very Angry Storyteller About the State of the World \\ Or Why I Choose Survival Over Death

I am angry.

Oh gods I am raging.

I don’t know how long I can contain and delay my rage and grief anymore. I am close to bursting. I need an outlet. I need Alexander (it’s become a book that’s emblematic of my passion - both hopeful and angry). I need to talk. I need to yell and scream and find catharsis and make something beautiful and radical out of the nonsense that is the last half of the 2010s. I need I need I am angry I am angry.

This is a really interesting question. I'm trying to think about the earliest examples from the Western world, and I feel like the first "taking over the world with a cunning plan" villain would be the aliens from the original War of the Worlds. But that's aliens, not humans.

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:
