When Orokie e-mailed me 3 week ago (see post below ), this is what he sent me :

There is a last piece, yes, unfinished, and now you know why, that I began early this year at trying to make a fine piece that you could show to visitors and family guests. A suitable-for-minors piece, in the likes and style of old illustrations that artist did in exchange of a small metal coin for their Vatican Masters or Kings. As with most of all that stuff, it may show some aggession, call it violence, that I hope would not damage any pure mind brought up in dear Western Culture, where the good always defeats the bad - in school books illustrations at least - Even unfinished, I hope you will enjoy it and put it on any decent wall at your home. Even in one bathroom, why not? We are always to visit that room a few times a day. And properly placed, it may even show out the strength of my A+ on the mirror while you shave.

This is not just coming like this. Saint George, the birthday of Orokie, the Good fighting the Bad.

Orokie was doubting if the good would always defeat the bad...

His friends tried to help his mind getting positive, because "Yes, You Can !!"

Gradually, strength came, and 3 days ago I got :

Thanks, Bonjour. I was dancing pencil for you. Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bonjour.jpg !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Na Waoooo !!

Orokie fights again !!

Yesterday morning, he had appointment with his doctors, and here are the latest news :

Ophthalmologist was very happy and accepted my thesis that he shall be strong in his spirit, trust himself as the best Ophthalmologist and start helping his patients and do his job superbly good, also to help me.

Damaged optic nerve goes degenerating badly
at slower speed than before and
slower speed than Ophthalmologist wrote during last visit.

I am gaining extra time by being positive and strong in my spirit with the help of my friends

Thanks to all

I am fine and positive

Be good
Stay well

So, we all hope that Orokie will soon be OK,

Stay well, be good

Mark / a friend of Orokie

bonjour marc,
soyez gentil de transmettre à orokie toute l'amitié et les priéres de philippe, son ami d'angoulême.
je suis trés triste de ce qui lui arrive, mais aussi content d'avoir enfin de ses nouvelles car j'étais trés inquiet depuis sa disparition.

Marc said...

Bonjour Dofdof,
Je vais lui passer votre message.

bonjour marc,
merci de cette réponse; je réponds un peu tardivement car j'étais absent.
pouvez vous me donner quelques nouvelles? j'ai un peu de mal pour lire le site en anglais.

Marc said...

Oui Phil,
Orokie est parti se refaire une santé en Afrique. Il devrait rester là-bas environ 3 mois, et revenir en décembre pour se faire opérer.

dofdof said...

merci de me donner quelques nouvelles, marc. c'est vraiment trés gentil.
je suis trés heureux d'avoir trouvé un interlocuteur, car j'étais vraiment inquiet. merci de faire ce lien.
j'espére qu'orokie va se remettre doucement de ce traumatisme et que cette opération sera un succés.
où va t'il se faire opérer?

Hi, am curious about the second picture in this post, the one with the cartoonish figure. Is this Orokie in your collection? It is quite unusual, simplistic.

Orokie did not send me this drawing, which is typical of the way he likes to joke.
The last one he sent me is "The wounded warrior", which can be put on sale too.
Orokie is presently in Africa with his family, and says that already his spirit is much better...
