John Waters' gleefully subversive Rhode Island School of Design commencement speech, zanily illustrated with line drawings that perfectly convey his wisdom, rebellion, and creativity. He reminds us that pragmatism and discipline are at least as important as talent, and that to succeed we would do well to eavesdrop, to listen to our enemies, to embrace chaos, be nosy, and outrage our critics. In other words, MAKE TROUBLE! A good gift for the new adult in your life who needs a little encouragement to think outside the box.
