“Make Good Art” Neil Gaiman’s Inspirational Commencement Speech at the University of the Arts 2012

I had to share this. This is one of the most inspirational commencement speeches I have ever heard and viewed. It features the author, Neil Gaiman (known for such novels as Stardust, and Coraline; and most notably, the comic book series, The Sandman). I first viewed this video in Advanced Prose Workshop. It is all thanks to our fellow Plymouth State University professor, Matthew Cheney that this video came to my knowledge. For it was he who showed our class the video, and since then, I have never forgotten it. No matter your major, no matter your creative ability, anyone and everyone can relate to this speech. To me, it is a must watch. So without further ado, please enjoy the video below! 🙂
