Question about TigerBlack

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?

Norm or not, insulting a customer to his face isn't cool. :/ I will steer clear of this TigerBlack guy.

Uhmmm yeah... Tigerblack contacted me a long time ago via IMs and it seemed that he just wanted to chat with me (fine and all), however it didn't take him very long at all to get on my bad side, as he seemed to be an opinionated jerk to me. :( I have no experiences with commissions from him, but he just didn't seem like a great guy to me...

I've had dealings with TigerBlack. We did an art trade. He did his part just fine, even after I had to ban him from my FA account.

That being said, yes, he's a jerk. As I said, I had to ban him from my FurAffinity page after he harassed me on my journals, lashed out at me when I left favorable comments on his art, patronized me, and sent friends of his to troll my page because he was pissed off at me for writing a journal listing my top ten favorite artists. (WTF?) And I don't normally ban ANYone from my stuff, I'm usually a pretty accepting person. Steer clear of him. He has issues.
