OMNOM

(no subject)

Do not take commissions from a person that goes by the name Vulpes Sapitenia ( spelling on the last name of the char. is horrible sorry!) I have taken a submission from him about 8 to 10 months ago now and still haven't received the payment on it... So I advise any of the people that take commissions, don't take one from him because you will probably never receive the payment!

Sharaww - Wolfacabra

 Hey all. Not trying to trash anyone, but hoping someone can put me in contact w/ the artist Sharaww. She had a site, wolfacabra.com, and offered in her LJ animated icons. I requested and paid for one on May 6th of 2009. Was told I'd get it in a few days. 

Waited. 

Tried contacting her a few times through her LJ, first time was told life had been crazy and she was having computer troubles. i told her don't worry, I understand, cuz I do. Was told it would be done soon. 

Waited some more.

Tried her LJ again. No response. 

Long story short, it's now nearly 4 months later, wolfacabra.com is no more, she's not responding to her LJ...I've looked to see if she has a DA page, and couldn't find any listing.

Anyone know where she is? I was excited about the icon, and it was only 7 bucks, (I paid 8$ to cover paypal and tip a bit) so not out a ton of money, but the fact remains that I paid for art and have not gotten it. The artist has disappeared, and I have no way to contact them or even request a refund if the art isn't done. I mean, I'd rather have the icon, her examples were really cute, but if I'm not getting the art I'd kinda like my money back, which I don't think is unreasonable.

Suggestions?

A Question.

A month or two ago, I took a couple of badge commissions. One customer ordered two badges from me for $10 each plus $2 for shipping, for a total of $22.

The long and the short of this situation is that the commissioner is the fiancee of a friend of mine, and since the time of the commission we have had a bit of a falling out and she and her fiancee are no longer speaking to me. At this point one badge is finished, and I intend to refund the price of the second one - however I have no way to mail these items to the customer. I've left two instant message reminders, to no reply. I've attempted to send an e-mail to the address that was attached to the Pay-pal they paid from (which had no mailing address associated with it) only to have it bounce. Attempting to send the client a note on Fur Affinity asking for a way to get these items to them yields that they have blocked me.

So, what would be the best option in this situation? Obviously I am trying to make right on my half of the transaction, but this person is making it impossible for me to send their badge and refund along to them. I have no intent to sully these people's names, thus why I haven't named anyone -- other than this they were quite pleasant to work with. I really would like to just get these things taken care of so that I can wash my hands of them since they are being so terribly unreasonable.


If by chance you are the person involved and you do read this, please e-mail me at pyrithia -at- gmail -dot- com with either an address to ship this badge and partial refund to, or a statement that you do not want them and are refusing refund and delivery.
