#MsBookworm Review: Make Good Art by Neil Gaiman


This book is short, extremely short, but it packs a punch. It's like a shot of positivity. In the time it take your Dad to down a cup of java and feel energized, you've gotten a healthy dose of inspiration for the day -- both visually and narratively. Make Good Art* is a stylized, book-bound version of Neil Gaiman's -- renowned author for children and adults (Coraline anyone?) -- speech he gave to the 2012 graduating class at the University of the Arts. Incredibly honest and to the point, the cute graphic design seem to make the words fly off the pages and straight into soul, where hopefully his key pieces of advice will germinate and bloom like seeds. And at the end of this short read, I'm sure you'll be well on your way to making good art and being an artsy (or art-filled) life as well.
