Art Matters by Neil Gaiman, Illustrated by Chris Riddell

This was a quick read. It took me maybe 20 minutes while I did my morning walk indoors, and this is largely due to the letters being big and the illustrations sometimes doubly so.

Art Matters is a collection of four previously published articles by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Chris Riddell to visually bring Gaiman’s words to life. It’s quite an inspiring book, especially the last article, “Make Good Art” – this one in particular is a good article for anyone looking to start a career in something creative be it as a writer, artist, dancer, photographer, or anything really. I tabbed a few wise-words to copy down, and hopefully it’ll remind me that it’s ok to be afraid and uncertain when you make ‘art’.
