Fail

Fail- Illustration Friday prompt for April 11.
"Rocky and Henrietta were so busy arguing about where to take the kids on spring break they failed to notice that they ended up with Momma Duck's children instead of their own!"
"HI Everybody! Thanks for stopping by the ol' sketchbook! I really appreciate all those fantastic comments you leave on my work! I will leave you this week with a resounding 'HAPPY SPRING!' and this piece of advice: If you take risks, you may fail. But if you don't take risks, you will surely fail. The greatest risk of all is to do nothing. — Robert Goizueta"
Also, check out this site about scientist turned artist Dr. Ann Adams. http://www.boingboing.net/2008/04/08/rare-brain-disease-g.html
Dr Adams was a Canadian scientist who died of a rare brain disease -- frontotemporal dementia -- which caused her to give up her lab and engage in an ecstasy of creative effort (and an agony of frustration as her mathematical ability slipped away), mostly centered on Ravel's Bolero, a composition he wrote in the throes of the same disease.
At the end don't forget to click on the link to see more of her amazing work!!!!
