Neil Gaiman – Inspirational Speech at the University of the Arts 2012

“I never really expected to find myself giving advice to people graduating from an establishment of higher education.  I never graduated from any such establishment. I never even started at one. I escaped from school as soon as I could, when the prospect of four more years of enforced learning before I’d become the writer I wanted to be was stifling.”

I fell in love with the work of Gaiman at a very young age. His stories, graphic novels and later movies are a constant source of inspiration. When paired with the artwork of Dave McKean his work takes me to a world of wonder. This keynote address, given at the University of the Arts address in 2012  is his reflection of the creative industry,life and writing. A must watch for all artist, designers and creatives.
