This is author Neil Gaiman addressing the University of the Arts Class of 2012.
It’s a genuinely inspiring speech in which he exhorts his audience to Make Good Art.
He also shares the secret knowledge of freelancing: people get hired because they get hired but … people keep working because:
- their work is good
- they are easy to get along with
- they deliver the work on time.
“And you don’t even need all three. Two out of three is fine.”
Well worth a 20 minute watch.
Keep moving towards your mountain.
