After winning his long battle with a benign brain tumor, Jack Eadon has prevailed and celebrates in his “guru years.”
"I’m acknowledging my rough times and celebrating my great times...and sharing my soul with All."
It is ok to feel weary sometimes. It is ok to cry and even to shout at the sky. It is ok to throw fits when we are at our wit’s end. The important thing is that we keep those fits short, make them count, and then move on - move forward, keep moving, keep learning, keep hoping, keep believing, keep smiling. Things have always worked out. Things will continue to always work out.
Jack was born in Hammond, Indiana and grew up in sleepy Morton Grove, IL, north of Chicago. By age 10 he had crafted his first short story. Musically, he played violin and later sang in the school chorus and church choir. He became a long distance runner, Eagle Scout, and started his band.
In 1965, Jack started the Vibratos with friend, Tom. That band evolved into Khazad Doom, which gained worldwide cult status with the LEVEL 6 ½ vinyl, which became the most valuable garage band music on the entire planet— $2,000 a copy! The limited edition CD called ENCORE!, provides a decade-long retrospective of the band’s work. It is available as a FREE music download with the purchase of a Kindle of GOT TO MAKE IT!
Jack got his MBA in 1974 in Marketing and Finance. He began his career on brands such as Quaker Oats, Aunt Jemima, Celeste Pizza, and Wolf Brand Chili. In 1978 a benign recurrent brain tumor was discovered and operated on. About every ten years the tumor recurred until it was “totaled” in 2010.
After his second surgery Jack left Wolf Brand and moved to California. His photographic avocation spawned a special effects advertising photography studio and his version of the light painting photographic technique.
While writing the original American Drama Series, he taught photography and writing at a local junior college. Now he is rewriting the series with a continuing themed character, Marcus Ramsay, Jack’s alter ego, and finishing a book a year.
Jack is finally expressing the art that has been deep inside him since he was a boy. His vision combines words, pictures, photography, and computer skills, with a strong philosophical base. Through this site, it is available at Fine Art America, and is distributed in five countries. In 2017, Jack launches the GELArt Shoppe featuring Jack's GELArt designs on a variety of clothing items, device cases and wall prints.
Jack Eadon passed away on October 10, 2019.
