Words of Wisdom from Neil Gaiman-Make Good Art

If you are  a creative person, be it a Writer, Illustrator, Designer, Director or whatever, you need to take twenty minutes and listen to this wonderfully inspired address from writer Neil Gaiman. You will not regret it.

Every now and then we need to have our fires stoked and our Inspiration bank refilled. For me this deposits a wealth of joy and hope into my account.

Neil addresses the graduating class of 2012 from the University of the Arts. He pushes them into the light of the real world with advice from his life and experiences. Let’s hope we listen and, “Make Good Art!”

See a cartoon paying homage to this video after the jump by Gavin Aung Than of Zen Pencils.  Enjoy!  (Pssst!! The cartoon makes sense after you watch the video!)
