I also watched a video recently of a commencement speech given to I forget what class at what school (it was University of Philidelphia, Class of 2012) but that doesn't matter because it was Neil Gaiman.
He said, "When things get tough, Make Good Art."
There you have it. The best advice ever. He has a new book based on this speech and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Make Good Art, people. And dance furiously.
