Is mooncookie okay?

This is not a complaint- I'm just not sure where else to post this.

Does anyone know if mooncookie is okay?

I commissioned her back in January 2007 for a piece, having had a good experience with her before. Overall she seemed very sweet and I really enjoyed working with her. I rarely commission others (having a small cash flow) so I was really confident in commissioning her a repeat time.

She was very quick to get me a sketch, it was brilliant and so she moved on to begin painting. Her communication was always great. She sent me a glorious in-progress shot of the work in February 2007 and I was tickled. She was doing a great job, and I was very pleased. I sent her an extra chunk of money as a tip, not only because I appreciated her great work and professionalisim, but because I felt she was undercharging. As an artist myself I know how much customer appreciation means. We talked a good bit and I felt we had a tenative friendship going. We were discussing doing collab-pieces and we were both excited. It sounds silly but she is a personality that I felt comfortable around and I am concerned for her.

Then... nothing. I've emailed her from different email accounts, sent her notes and posted in her journal. I am not overly concerned with my commission- it gets done when it gets done and I gave her no deadline- I was just struck with how odd it was that it went from perfect communication to absolute silence. I am concerned for her well-being.

Does anyone know her in person or know a way to get in touch with her? Again I am not trying to pester for my art. It would be a big relief just to know that she's okay.

Her last activity that I can see was that she posted a journal entry on: Tue Feb 27, 2007, 7:01 PM
And she posted a deviation/artwork on: Mar 31, 2007
The last email I got from her was in Feb. 2007 ( I don't know the exact date but can look it up if necessary)

Thanks for any info!

I remember seeing her in this community a while back.


Seems in April 07, she vanished mysteriously after a very nice record of contact and keeping up with her commissions. She left several people concerned more about her well being than the commissions they were getting from her.

It's a little troubling how suddenly she vanished after such good commission behavior. :( I hope someone can possibly bring up some more recent information.

I was wondering myself! I've been watching her on DA, and noticed she hadn't posted any artwork in quite some time. :\

I hope she's okay, and that you're able to find out if she is!

Good luck finding her! ;-; I hope she is alright!

I've been wondering the same thing too for the same reasons. I don't mind waiting good amounts of time for art that I commission, but she seemed very sweet and good about keeping in contact with folks. So I worry about her and whether or not she's okay, especially after all this silence.

The only thing I've received from her was back in May 2007. So I know she was okay up until that point. Here's what could be a small clue in regards to her disappearance:

"Again thank you for waiting and putting up with my excuses. I am just working so many hours at my job that commissions are taking so much longer than I had hoped. Sorry again! "

I was just checking up on her, but never heard from her after that. I've sent a couple notes with no response, so...I do hope she's okay and wish someone would update us with more info. :(

Yeah- I can't tell with the emails I've sent but I can tell she's not opened/read the notes I've sent (So I don't think she's just ignoring). The fact that she's not opening them leads me to think she may not even be logging on to DA- maybe she lost her internet access. :/ I just hope it's nothing worse than that.
