Artist? Freelancer? Neil Gaiman Has Some Advice for You

Neil Gaiman Addresses the University of the Arts Class of 2012 on Vimeo

Gaiman offers *excellent* advice for *any* sort of freelancer at the 14-minute mark. The rest is good if you like Gaiman, or writing, or fiction, or comix, or art, or English accents, but the minute starting around 14:00 is *vital* of you roll freelance. The bit at around 18:40 hits me in the right place as well, because I’ve been pretending like I am what I am for a solid 20 years, and it’s more-or-less working.
