...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.))

I swear to god I would sell my soul to get this tattooed on me (with your permission, of course!) but alas, I live nowhere near any decent tattoo artists. I can but dream, I guess :giggle:

Seriously though, your gallery is pure eyecandy, keep up the beautiful work my friend :wave:

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! =)
