The Gap

The voice of storyteller Ira Glass, of This American Life, has gotten us through countless commutes in traffic and long travels on the road. His interviews and anecdotes have the ability to inspire, rouse and motivate through radio waves. Several years ago, he gave an inspirational dialogue with Current.tv, which has been so beautifully interpreted by German-based artist Daniel Sax by way of animated typography. Glass’ motivational address encourages artists, creatives and writers to fight through the struggle. Give it a listen.

  4. Zen Pencils did a comic based on this same monologue. http://zenpencils.com/comic/90-ira-glass-advice-for-beginners/

    If you don’t know, Zen Pencils makes comics based on famous or profound quotes. Many are quite touching and meaningful.
