Lost Contact: Jeso/Jesonite

Well, lets hope I do this right, if not, please let me know... been awhile since I've used LJ...

Who: Jeso/Jesonite

Where: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jeso/ can also be found at http://jesonite.deviantart.com/

What: Full Digital Color.


When:
Email screenshots are kind of hard for me to take at the moment - I will probably post them later once I get home from work.

I originally contacted Jeso via email on 4/13/11 when he was open for commissions. I got a reply back on 1/24/12 that he was willing to take on my commission. We talked back and forth that same day that I could pay for the commission on 2/3/12 and if he was willing to wait for me to pay him then, I would like to be added to his queue.

He confirmed with a price of 130 USD and was willing to wait for that payday.

I contacted him again on 2/3/12 asking him if he was still interested. I got a reply same day, and confirmed payment in total of 144.49 - to give him a small tip, and to cover paypal fees. Screenshot of payment -> https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16620258/paypal%20confirmation%20of%20payment.png

I then got a sketch from him on 2/10/12.

I heard from Jeso again on 3/13/12 with an update that he was busy, but was letting me know he was working on things. I thanked him in a reply same day for the update.

Skip forward to 10/14/12 - I'm probably one of the more patient people you will meet when it comes to working with an artist. I get that life happens, and that you get busy. So I waited quite sometime before I sent him an email, asking him if he had an update for me. No reply.

Emailed him again on 2/19/13 - no reply. Left a note for him on FA and on DA - Notes were read, and not replied to.

Emailed again on 4/9/13 - Notes sent on FA and DA as well - No reply.

Emailed again 8/6/13 - No reply.

Emailed again 12/6/13 - informing him that if I did not get a reply back from him I would be posting a lost contact up on Artist beware. I sent him a note on FA as well, that has also been unread.


So at this point, I'm at a loss of where to go. I saw that someone else had posted lost contact with him, but they never got a reply either.

Could someone please tell me which direction I should go with this? I know I've waited a long time to do this and at this point I feel that I will not see the art. I don't want a refund, just what I paid for. I want a response from him. Something, ANYTHING - not a pass through from his 'friends'.

If he thinks I'm angry, I'm not. I just want a status update if he's going to finish the art when he can. Communication is all I'm seeking.

Thanks.

Well, he's quite active on facebook, I can tell you that. You're probably being ignored.

I'm not surprised by your reply, but honestly I am more disappointed now then when I originally posted this.

I guess, if that's the case, I'll be changing this - with the permission of the mods of course - from a lost contact to a Beware, and I'll try to find him on Facebook.

Thank you.

You'd need to resubmit with appropriate email screencaps to turn this into a beware.

I'd suggest trying to contact the artist on Facebook and then post a beware if you receive no contact.

I believe that is the same time around when I commissioned him for my piece. Like you, I sent e-mails back and forth and waited for my WIP shots... And I finally got mine around 2 months later after asking for a refund when I only received just a sketch.

He replied 2 days later and managed to finish the entire thing after replying back to me. It was quick.

Now, I don't know. I think he's having some serious issues IRL for him to not pay any attention to any of his e-mails or notes on DA/FA... I suppose he is ignoring but I surely hope it's not a pirate-cashoo incident. Sorry to hear that you are going through with this though as I've went through the same thing.

you're not the only one who has an issue with him. I know databank was looking for him -- i tried to help him thru a mutual friend jeso and I share, and had him relay databank's message to Jeso.

honestly? i would not be surprised if jeso never contacted databank.

You would also be correct, just as a status update. For the record, I got in touch with Mandakatt via the Twitters.
