Thank you for the nice birthday wishes! :) 

Another significant update: I recently had a preventative double mastectomy and I'm currently recovering. Gonna be for a while. You may remember that my mom passed away from cancer in January -- she had had genetic testing, and was positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation. I have the same thing, so I decided to have the mastectomies now to avoid cancer later. I've been writing about the whole process on my Tumblr (gingerhaole.tumblr.com), for anyone who's curious or might have to go through the same thing. It's not like a picnic, but it's honestly not so bad.

I still haven't drawn much of anything, but it feels really nice to see that people still keep up with me here and still get a kick out of my old work. I appreciate it!

I haven’t drawn anything I’ve been satisfied with enough to share for a very, very long time. I always wonder, when I go this long without, if I’ve still even got it. It’s nice to know I do.

Thanks for your face, Adam Driver.

I haven't been on DA much for the last couple years, and I wanted to let everyone know what's been going on with me. My son David just turned a year old on Christmas Eve, and this was what my mom was waiting for. She ended her long battle with cancer just yesterday, at a hospice house near me. Up until a couple weeks ago, I had been her caregiver. For obvious reasons, I just haven't done much drawing for a couple years. Hopefully I get back into it, but if I do, I probably won't come back to DA in any big capacity.

A lot of you have written to me and asked to keep up with me, and if you'd like to, I'm pretty active on Tumblr. (gingerhaole.tumblr.com) Anything I make or draw will end up there.

As for the heartbreaking news of David Bowie's and Alan Rickman's passing, it sits heavily with me. I loved them both, and so did my mom. But having just lost my mom to cancer and seen the hard fight, I can promise you that they're better now, they're free. I'm sad for us, but I'm happy for them. Be happy for them.

Aw, jeez, thanks for all the nice birthday greetings, you guys! :) I have to say, even though I haven't been as artistically active this year, you've been incredibly supportive, enthusiastic and encouraging. People talk a lot of smack about the DeviantArt crowd, but I've been extremely lucky to have such a great group of viewers. You make it fun. Extra fun!
