"Shut up and eat your peas" was a common parental utterance at the dinner table when I was a lad. It seems I still experience the societal equivalent of that attitude whenever I show off my creative efforts as an adult.
An example of that sort of thing can be seen below in what is probably my first professionally-printed illustration back in 1994. It's a piece of fan-art for one of EC's horror comics reprint editions. Please don't hurt me.
