Die

2 years. And counting.

WHO: furaffinity.net/user/squeedgemonster/ who is also on other sites that are linked on her page





WHERE: furaffinity.net/user/squeedgemonster/ who i have also contacted through the email linked on their FA page - SqueedgeMonsterArt[at]gmail.com whose email used to be monsterguts[at]hotmail.com





WHAT: Originally it was for a traditional badge for 23$ that I was REALLY looking forward to, i had commissioned it in may in hopes of having it by my birthday June 28. A year and a half later I sent an email asking what was up, and the order was changed to a pinup since i had waited so long. It was also supposed to be traditional, and mailed out to be upon completion like the badge was supposed to be.


Here are screen caps of emails between me and her when i first commissioned on may 20th 2009

WHEN: I provided time line information with the images, but i payed and got the commission OKed on May 20th 2009, got a finished product (though not the one i originally asked for) on September 11, 2010, and still have yet to have it sent to me in the mail as promised.





PROOF: my proof is above, in the screen caps





EXPLAIN: I had always liked her art, so i had gotten a little bit of money to spend in my paypal and really wanted to buy myself a birthday gift. My birthday was on June 28th. I had commissioned the badge on May 20th, hoping it was enough time to be able to see it by my birthday. I wasn't too upset when my birthday passed and hadn't gotten it yet. Maybe a month wasn't enough time to do a badge? Christmas started to approach and I was like...well hey, X-mas gift to myself instead. Nothing. Then another birthday passed, so I got upset and tried contacted them more and telling them how upset I was with emails. She said she was sorry and upgraded my commission to a pinup instead of a badge, and told me they would still ship it out to me. September 2010 I got a low res photo of the finished image and was told to send my mailing address, which I did. From that point on I sent emails telling them I hadn't gotten it yet and asking if they had sent it. I never got an responses back and still haven't gotten it. I don't even have a good scanned version..They still upload things often, so I know they didn't like...die or anything. I am really upset about all of this, and now I am moving again, so if they send it out now without contacting me or answering my emails, it'll go to a wrong address and I will never get it.

Unusual situation with commissioner?

This isn't a beware -- it's more of a "I need advice" sort of thing.

I was commissioned recently by someone who wanted to commission a gift for a friend. They commissioned me rather close to their friend's birthday and so they agreed to pay for it as a rush order, we agreed on a date and I was very comfortable with everything. They were very, very nice, reasonable and paid quickly and in full!

Need contact!

 Hey, this is not a beware, but I definitely don't remember this artist's name and need to get into contact with them.

It was the girl who was making the really good free badges in the Elliot's artist alley this weekend and was mostly sitting with a guy named Inu (who I also can't find on FA). She was going to make me a free badge, which isn't a big deal if I ever see or not, but I let her borrow my xacto knife and had to leave before I could find her again. Does anyone know who this was and can link me to their FA? Thanks!

Edit:

Info that may help, I requested a badge similar to a drawing they had in their art pad (not sure if it is posted online somewhere). This drawing was a coyote forelegs and up wearing green shutter shades with a minimal background and sun with the text "Coyote Cool."

Edit 2:

Someone who has begun following me after ESG has noted me saying he knows who I am seeking and gave me a FA name. I have noted them, but I won't say case closed until I get a response from them. It also appears that they let a second artist use the knife and then left it in this artist's care. This artist then handed it off to someone else. That bit is really hearsay and what someone told me until I have had confirmation from the artist(s) in question, but I will update on that. I still have no contact with the other supposed two artists, one of which goes by Inu and has a sergal fursona, who is the second artist in question. Basic FA search doesn't turn up his name.

Edit 3:

They noted me back right after I edited this and I found them. If anyone else is looking for her to contact about their badge, her FA is CrestedDog. They do not have my xacto, but that can be handled without the help of the community here. Thanks everyone! Case closed!
