I really enjoy Neil Gaiman’s work, from “Sandman” (I only ever had one copy, but thats all I needed as a friend who was happy to loan me their copies had all the others), I’ve also read a few of his books (American Gods is great), and seen some of his work adapted for film and TV. Well, don’t I sound like the fanboy. What I like about him is he’s really clever but keeps it accessible and in his books anything is possible.

Anything is possible, hmm, well In this address to the University of Arts this is exactly what he tells the graduates. Weaving a picture of the world of the freelance creative he speaks of the terror and thrills of having your own vision and pursuing it. I find it inspiring. Especially as I have no idea what is going to happen next….
