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!
