I purchased this book based on Neil Gaiman’s commencement address at The University of Arts in Philadelphia while on vacation in the Bay Area and finally got a chance to watch the video. What an inspiring talk! For anybody interested in pursuing a career in the arts (be it writing, cartooning, photography), please do yourself a favor and watch it.
“Sometimes life is hard. Things go wrong. In life and in love and in business and in friendship and in health and in all the other ways that life can go wrong. And when things get tough…this is what you should do…MAKE…GOOD…ART.”
