Hey, Adam Savage isn’t the only one able to make incredibly inspirational speeches. Neil Gaiman is an amazing author whose creativity has astounded me since I first read Sandman. I went on to read his other amazing including American Gods, Marvel 1602, Stardust, Good Omens, and Coraline. He inspired me to stick to my dreams of writing and illustration. Neil Gaiman was at the University of the Arts 2012 graduation ceremony and this is what he said.
Now he’s making me question my return to school (don’t worry I’m staying in school this time), but just like my brother, words like these inspired me to create Call Yourself a Nerd. Whatever you want to do, just do it. Make something. Make good art. Be inspired. And don’t give up.
