Ladies and Gentlemen, charge your beverage containers. The toast is: To absent friends.
Rest in peace, Sir Terry Pratchett. You will be missed.

One of my favorite artists here on dA, :iconfrancis001:, has been off-line for awhile and just updated his journal:
An Update on Francis Tsai...
Journals / Personal

As some of you know, I was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) back in 2010. This is a fatal degenerative nerve disease with no known cause or cure. It affects people in different ways but typically ends in total paralysis and death due to respiratory failure, unless you undergo some invasive body modification procedures to help prevent that. Being an illustrator/concept artist, naturally it took my arms and hands first. I haven't held a pencil since early 2011. Bummer, but I discovered I could use an iPhone with my toes. I figured out how to use the Brushes app and made a handful of paintings. My toes have since lost the dexterity for that, so I've started using eye-gaze controlled technology to type and hopefully paint.

To help generate some income while I wait for science to get its stuff together, my awesome sister Marice has put together an online shop featuring some of my artwork. Please consider picking up some cool Tsai swag and sharing this post!

The store is located at:

keight Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2015
Hey, Armin, all is better with me than I've been feeling. I've just been busy finishing late gifts, this year's taxes, first year post cancer check-ups, trying to get studio surfaces cleared away so I can get back to working on "Oops!", two birthdays, our anniversary, and having our local kids and dog here overnight and for Easter. Easter was a special day. The most important parts happened. The fiddly bits that were "supposed" to happen, didn't. We were together, safe, made it to Sunday services, and the kids and dog made it safely home after dinner. The next day I was surprised at how tired I was. I hope your Easter was great as well. I just am having no brain when it comes to leaving proper comments right now.

oh i dont worry about the comments just i knew you where dealing with some health issues.  Sounds like a busy time in you life.  Yesterday my son Ean had his first Gallery show with two quite established photographers he is only eighteen he was very nervous but sold well, better then the big boys.  I was very proud of him.  We lost both our dogs within a short time, this Spring it is so wife and i are thinking of spending a year in Germany starting next year so we will not be get a new dog soon so the house is very quite ive never been without a dog, and don t like it one bit.  Stay healthy my friend talk to you soon...Armin

I am thrilled that Ean's first Show went so well! You have the right to be very proud of him. He seems to have inherited the family's "artistic eye". Our dogs left us about four months apart, so I understand, I'm still weighing the pros and cons of adopting another dog. The medication I have to take leaves me rather stiff in the morning, so that early morning chow and water change gets tricky with a young dog trying to "help". The idea of a sabbatical in Germany sounds lovely. May you and yours also stay well... 'til next time...Kate

Thank you so much for the favs, and your words of appreciation! I am so glad my work touches you personally, and brings up, hopefully good memories from the past... That means the most to me. How we all find connection to one another through each others Art and our stories we share.... With deepest gratitude Ed
