Fail EPICLY by DoubtingSalmon Fail EPICLY by DoubtingSalmon


Base
was the piece by *erebus-odora; used with permission.



Christmas present for my friend ~KarinaSpellman. Finished piece is about 7" by 14".

Took about 2.5 seasons of How I Met Your Mother to complete, plus finishing touches when I got to my friend's apartment.

Quote by Samuel Beckett.

To reiterate:
This design does not belong to me, it's only my interpretation.

This is one of my favorite pieces. Found it on tumblr, but it took awhile to track down the original source to your page here.

I don't suppose you offer prints of this? I'd love to have it on my wall.

Kudos to erebus-odora for the design and the well-chosen quotation! However, what really makes this piece stand out is the utterly incredible detail and intricacy of the paper cutting - and that is all you!

This little papercraft is currently keeping up my morale as I try to learn to draw horses.  This piece looks fantastic, and the words are powerful while also carrying an important message for any artist.  Great job!

This would make an amazing tattoo. Also it's awesome in that it highlights the best way to make a change when you suffer from low self-esteem and crippling fear of failure. Basically my new motto in life.
