View Full Version : Has *Anybody* heard from Jacktar?

People come and go from internet forums, but Jacktar's dissapearance bothers me. I don't know his actual age and health status, but to see the veritable volcano of artworks from the man abruptly cease gives me pause. If anyone has a notion of how to learn the story of Jack I'm all ears. In the mean while I will do as I did during Phil's absence.

Yeah. I'm hoping his computer blew up or something. He seemed to be careful about money, so maybe he couldn't just go out and buy a new computer.
That's the vision I'm working with.
Hey, wasn't he playing around with some little animation program? I think I went and looked at that board some time back. Don't recall if he posted there or not.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, too.
Sure hope he is ok.

Jack is 60+ and lives about 50 miles south of me.,but I don't know where.
I've tried raising him on a PM without success.

Really nice to know he's still around.
If Jack's still been able to paint how many do you think he has got in the pipeline ready to post? :lol:

Good to hear. Jack made professional paintings. Thanks speggie to inform.

Awesome news! I found someone who I thought was him while googling -- they set up an MSN group (that I can only find references to) called Jacks Art and used the login ID of jacktar51. No email address though. I tried email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org - but no luck.
Glad you heard from him.
