Beware / lost contact - ricefish

Hello everyone (long-time lurker, first-time poster), I'm looking for some possible advice or insight on a small issue I've run into with an artist.

Back in early May of this year, I commissioned ricefish of FA for two 5 x 5cm icons, one for myself, and one for a friend for $24 USD. I was assured that the two of these small pieces would be finished and shipped prior to June the second. Things sort of went downhill rather quickly after the first few weeks.

And that's about it. Would anyone happen to know anything of what has happened to ricefish or any alternate ways to contact her? Any help or advice would be immensely appreciated. The caps are all of the exchanges that went on between myself and the artist, though if there is anything else I need to provide, please let me know.

Riffuchs

This is not a beware! I took on a commission from Riffuchs, and communication was great. He would respond to me in a very timely manner until I got to the last step on his commission. He asked that he be sent the flat colors for approval, and so I did. He sent me a note saying he would review the image that weekend, and I've yet to hear from him. It's been a month. I sent him a polite note two weeks ago asking if he got a chance to see the link, and that note sits unread in my outbox.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has had contact with him recently, or if he tends to drop off the face of the Earth and then return later. He's been a very good person to work with, and I'd love to get his commission finished so that I may open that slot up. :)

Thanks!
