Neil Gaiman: “Make good art”

This has been making its way around the internet the last several days. But I thought I’d post it here, just in case some of you haven’t seen it. It’s Neil Gaiman’s commencement address to the class of 2012 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia on May 17th. It’s funny, and inspiring, and if you are any kind of artist, not only a writer, this is an absolute must watch. Enjoy.

    In the past year, I’ve been to two commencement ceremonies (my nieces) and I have to say I found myself so inspired by the speakers (Pico Ayer was one). Makes me wonder if ‘grown-ups’ like us possibly get more out of addresses like this one than the graduates (who often see the day as a long, boring affair). I hope that’s not the case, of course. This is great. Thank you, Tracey, for sharing this (and for the blush-worthy comment you left on my blog). Have a great weekend.
