Make Good Art [video]

My sister sent me this. She sends me brilliant things. Pretty pictures. Thought-provoking commentaries. Shiny poetry. And inspiring flicks…

Neil Gaiman reminds me of… me. I bluffed my way into my first publishing role, telling a bunch of unsuspecting Aussie magazine guys that I had loads of experience as a subeditor, before racing out of the interview to the nearest bookshop to find out exactly what a subeditor did. I bought every book on magazine craft I could find.

“If you’re not sure you can do something, pretend you are a person who can do it and then act like them.”

This video is 20 minutes very well spent.
