In May 2012, bestselling author Neil Gaiman delivered the commencement address at Philadelphia's University of the Arts, in which he shared his thoughts about creativity, bravery, and strength. He encouraged the fledgling painters, musicians, writers, and dreamers to break rules and think outside the box. Most of all, he encouraged them to make good art.

Kidd's text-based art brings a unique dimension to Gaiman's already simple but inspirational speech. His message is applicable to anyone, not just artists or graduates. A word of caution to ebook readers: Because the visual aspect is as important as the verbal, the font cannot be adjusted as it typically can with ebooks. This means that some of the text may be especially tiny if you’re reading on a small mobile device.
