Staff Reviews


This book, taken from the text of Neil Gaiman's commencement address to Philadelphia's University of the Arts, is incredible. I picked it up on a whim, and it was exactly what I as an artist needed to hear. Read it! Find inspiration everywhere and learn more about working toward your creative goals.

— Emily

Description


In May 2012, bestselling author Neil Gaiman stood at a podium at Philadelphia's University of the Arts to deliver the commencement address. For the next nineteen minutes he shared his thoughts about creativity, bravery, and strength: he encouraged the students before him to break rules and think outside the box. Most of all, he encouraged the fledgling painters, musicians, writers, and dreamers to make good art.

This book, designed by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd, contains the full text of Gaiman's inspiring speech. Whether bestowed upon a young artist beginning his or her creative journey, or given as a token of gratitude to an admired mentor, or acquired as a gift to oneself, this volume is a fitting offering for anyone who strives to make good art.
