...fail better. by erebus-odora ...fail better. by erebus-odora
I made three very alike little drawings - nearly copies of this one. They are only slightly different; the trick is, the other two are travelling to two cities of this lovely world, as some surprise postcards to the people I like :rose:

The words belong to the mighty wordsman Samuel Beckett. This could seriously be my family motto.))

If there was a request as tattoo button I'd press it. This is awesome.

Whoa, I'd love to have a tattoo based on this! I mean... it's almost 4am and I might rethink my life choices, but still, this picture is AWESOME: the owl, the feathers, the background details... perfect!

Oh, I would love to hang one of these above my table, so I could look at it every time I fail at something and smile. Then I would imagine myself as this everawesome and everboss owl, and after that I'd be ok again. :D Great work! =)

I want to see it ALL. ALL of it. Every last beautiful, broken, glorious, dark, stunning part of it.

It will probably be the first of several trips :))
