On Being Young and Creative

I found this cartoonist Hugh MacLeod's page linked from Drawn today. He wrote a pretty long text about how to fit your creative stuff into your life. Some of it is stating the obvious but I found it to be very realistic and truthful. An example:
Diluting your product to make it more "commercial" will just make people like it less.

It's balancing the need to make a good living while still maintaining one's creative sovereignty.

Here's the link to the text:

If you're a young person doing something creative that you love to do, read this, then read The Fountainhead if you haven't already.

Also, placing the word "on" before any title sure makes it sound classy!
