Once upon a time I posted Neil Gaiman’s address to Make Good Art. It’s pretty famous and I love it. Not just because I love him and all his works or how the tone of his voice. No, it’s a pretty good reminder that it’s worth it to make art. And that we don’t need a particular reason to do so.
Now he’s part of this project and he and others (including his wife Amanda Palmer) give us permission to art… or to make art. Whatever art that is. In whatever way we see fit. Because the world would be poorer, if we didn’t.
Seeing a clip like that and hearing all those voices of people, who’ve done it, gives me hope and makes me feel more validated than almost anything else.
So here you go, in case you haven’t seen it yet.
