Anyone want to sail with Orokie?
Where is the ship now?

What about his family, his friends, popular joints he liked to visit? Are you in touch with them.

I like Orokie. And he should come back soon to continue enriching us with his beautiful and unique art.

Everyone is in the dark.
As he had been seriously ill, he did not visit popular joints. You, like many, miss his enriching art work SEA.

I hope that Orokie is not in trouble.

I have followed all the posts since he was taken ill on 7th March. Then there were some posts from him on 4th April. On 19th May a concern was raised about 11 days of no communication from OROKIE! And seems that now there are more and more days!

It seems he was already out of the hospital as some of the comments wished him well as he recovers from surgery. I do wish him well too!

Orokie, if you read this message kindly know that you have many big fans out here. Not just fans but people who love you and and concerned about you. Who wish to paint with you and look at the expressions in your face and in your heart as you paint.

I personally do hope that you will write soon to all of us. I will also plan to visit you God willing one of these great days! Hey Orokie you are a great inspiration!

I fear that Orokie is in trouble and that is the reason for the silence. The order of events (from emails) are these: Orokie was in hospital for very major surgery. He spent a long time recovering (about 12 months). He resumed drawing again-- these are the notebooks on Afriboy. Then, he suffered a serious relapse, had to undergo major corrective surgery once more. He began to feel better, then wrote to say he felt unwell...after that, nothing. There has been a 3 month silence.
