Inspiring Speech
Make Good Art - Chip Kidd,Neil Gaiman

 

Lovely edition! Nice quick read!

 

It's Gaiman’s inspiring speech designed by the graphic artist Chip Kidd.

It's a really good book to read when you feel sad.

It'll cheer you up.

Make Good Art - Chip Kidd,Neil Gaiman This little book/speech is yet another proof: Neil Gaiman is wise and inspirational beyond belief.

"Make Good Art" encourages its readers to chase their dreams, choose their paths, and to break the rules. Gaiman implies that failures can be fantastic; that mistakes can be good, and that it all depends on finding your own voice and creating your own originality. To witness such an artistic man as Neil Gaiman share his views on good art is truly fascinating.

Some people have complained about the layout of this book, but I really think it is brilliant. The illustrator actually proves Gaiman's point; that rules are allowed to be bend and broken. An important thing to remember and to cherish, always.

'Make Good Art' Speech - A Review

 

The most inspiring speech I ever encountered. Reading Neil Gaiman's books is a life-lasting experience of one kind but after reading his speech he had given at Philadelphia's University of the Arts in 2012 it felt similar to being struck by lightning (not that I would have any experience with lightning but you know what I mean..) and I will need a lot of time to recover. In the best way possible. I loved every word of it. I feel like there is still chance for us all. If you are any kind of an artist at all you should get your hands on this.

 

 

With the help of Chip Kidd, a graphic artist, the speech of Neil Gaiman is even more striking. The way this whole speech is printed is so pretty... I just want to marry this book.

 

 

 

"When I agreed to give this address, I started trying to think what the best advice I'd been given over the years was. And it came from Stephen King twenty years ago, at the height of the success of Sandman. I was writing a comic that people loved and were taking seriously. King had liked Sandman and my novel with Terry Pratchett, Goog Omens, and he saw the madness, the long signing lines, all that, and his advice was this: This is really great. You should enjoy it. And I didn't."

 

 

You can watch Neil Gaiman say the whole speech h e r e.
