This 'every discussion with family/relatives ever'

Don't you think you should get a regular job?

...And the real meaning of "exciting new project"

Can you draw me something real quick?

Personal style be damned, COULD YOU draw something like this?

Next time you meet a comic artist, be nice, be open, take them seriously and try not to say these things! Big thanks to the Reddit Community for giving (venting to) us their insights!
