I was glad to see he was fully acknowledged by the NY Times.  May be time soon for a road trip to Ohio State.

I know so many have already stated this, but what a loss when Jay left this world.  I was fortunate to meet him a number of times over the years and I commissioned him back in the late 90's to create a Wacky of one of my favorite food items of all time, Funny Face kool-aid.  He was more than generous with his time and I felt like I was part of creating some great work of art.  What a great feeling and something he was so kind about.  It was like taking batting practice with Ted Williams or playing one-on-one with Michael Jordan.  And the amount of time he gave our hobby with all his stories is something I know we all treasure.  Certainly, my thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.  And I know he'll live on in his artwork and the stories we in this hobby will have to share.  Rest in peace, Jay.

Well put here Tom, I know you, Scott, John, and I will never forget the great time we had at his apt. when he was living in Chicago during that one late 90's show.

Amazingly, Jay's best pal Skip Williamson, another Underground Comix legend just passed away as well only a little over a week later.

I wish I'd met Jay; I think I might have liked him a lot. Rest in peace, O Wacky master among many Wacky masters. By the way, if anyone wants to see a lot of Jay's Wacky art, go to lostwackys.com and click on the section "Lost Wackys". Rusty's got a lot of his black and white rough art and color rough art of Wackys that never were. Ah well, we still have the memories-and the finished ones.

Just had a brainstorm-does anyone think that these roughs I previously mentioned would make great OLDS Wackys made as a tribute to Jay's memory?

yes, he does have all those images - and every single one was directly lifted from the old John Mann wacky site.

Yes, there are some good gags lost in this treasure trove.  Perhaps some of the artists visit these sites for inspiration?  Don't know.  Maybe we'll see some of these titles in OS6?  Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Reminds me of the "Pupsi" dog:

Roxanne Toser also used to have a significant collection of his gags. Don't know if they've ever been completely cataloged.

Also, I'm not sure it's been mentioned before, but most of the titles from the Chrome series Cutting Room Floor (and 17th series binders) were based on original concepts from Jay.

There are some concepts that Jay and I did together in Old School 6 and one based on an old 70s design.

See?  There you are, mikecho.  Your wish has come true.

Nobody lives forever, except through their deeds.  And as long as somebody is painting a Wacky, considering a new Wacky idea, or simply holding a Wacky with smiling eyes, Mssrs. Lynch, Saunders, Stewart, et al. will always be with us.

This is great! I can't wait to see which of Jay's Wackys were finally made.

Thanks a lot. I didn't even know that there was another site that even had these. I even found one that I missed as a Spreadsheet Note-the one that Baked Bears just showed us on 3-15.

I just heard of Jays passing. What a shame, such a talented artist. I had come across an ebay auction for a sketch of Jay and upon closer inspection noticed it was a memorial card given out at his funeral. :sad:

Life was and still is funnier and wackier because of you Jay. Thank you for chatting with me on the forums and hanging out with all of us over the years, for signing some of my wackys and thank you for the awesome Dopey Whip sketch you did that lives proudly in my home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  You're going out in style, as it should be. Best, Darynne BBG
