Neil Gaiman's Commencement Speech 2012: Make Good Art


Freelance author Neil Gaiman's commencement speech at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia is a testment to education in the 21st century. The old rules no longer apply. Each of us is in charge of our destiny in ways that our parents could never have envisioned. It truly is a time where, with persistence and the willingness to fail, we can discover what we love to do and go out there and do it for a living.


"When life goes wrong," Gaiman states, "make good art. Husband runs off with a politician? Make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutant boa constrictor? Make good art.... someone on the internet thinks what you're doing is stupid or evil or it's all been done before? Make good art." 


His commencement speech highlights what truly are the new rules of the game: love what you do, and do it a lot. Share it with those who will listen.


Enjoy all 19 minutes of this excellent speech.
