"I knew that as long as I kept walking towards the mountain I'd be alright. And when I truly was not sure what to do, I could stop and think about whether it was taking me towards or away from the mountain."
A few weeks ago I found this incredible commencement speech that Neil Gaiman gave to this year's graduating class from University of the Arts. I must have listened to it three times in a row and many times after that. I wanted to share it here because a) Neil Gaiman is awesome and, b) his words had a profound impact on the way I now think about the career I am trying to shape (especially after reflecting on them after Meg Hunt's Illustration Bootcamp that I attended a couple of weeks ago—there's a recap coming soon, I swear!) and I think it is definitely worth a listen for anyone working in a creative field.
