Neil Gaiman On How to Be an Artist

Neil Gaiman, author of the Sandman series of comics, offered this graduation address to the 2012 class of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. It's full of great tips on living and working as an artist. My personal favorites: "Make good art" and "Pretend you're someone who can do it." Enjoy!

As a person without art school credentials, I enjoyed hearing that if you work hard, and pretend you can do it... there is a good chance that you can!
Thanks for posting!

@ d.moll - Yes, that one too: "make art that only you could make"
@ Elizabeth, I don't have a license to make art either. I love that about art :)
