Neil Gaiman University of the Arts Graduation Speech 2012

Great inspiration and advice for artists of all stripes from Neil Gaiman graduation speech at the University of the Arts:

If you have an idea of what you want to make, what you were put here to do, then just go and do that. -- Neil Gaiman

I LOVED this speech, it rocks!! "Make good art!!" Brilliant!

Isn't this awesome? I swear, I'm going to have to watch this once a month or so! Just brilliant.


Janet! This is so inspiring. I love his work so much... though I haven't read much... I feel like he has such an interesting spirit. This speech has really hit home with me because of where I am write now and it makes me realize that this will all work out and make sense eventually... if I just keep going :-)

This video meant so much to me, too, Shaheen. I keep hearing in my spirit "Make good art". Wow. If that doesn't keep one going, huh?
