I was wondering - has anyone here had any negative transcations with an artist by the name of TigerBlack?
The reason I ask is because a friend of mine (who'll remain anonymous, but he's someone I trust and have worked with for several years on numerous occassions without any problems), has had some bad experiences with this artist. (he'd post here himself, but he does not have an LJ account, so I'm posting this inquiry for him).
About a year ago, he commissioned TigerBlack for a commissioned piece and paid the amount in full. However, he (my friend) has yet to see any progress in regards to the image he had commissioned (even though TigerBlack had said he had started work upon it early on in the transaction). And it isn't like my friend hadn't attempted to get ahold of the artist in all this time to find out what was taking so long - quite the contrary. However, every time the artist was contacted, my friend would receive anything from excuses behind why the piece has yet to be started/completed, to blatant insults pertaining to his (my friend's) choice in artwork.
So, I'm wondering - if anyone has had any run ins with him - is this TigerBlack's norm when it comes to commissioned work?
