Avsun Update


So! If you remember my post a while back, I was yet another person who got screwed when Avsun disbanded.  However, my case was a bit different than everyone else's, in that I had been sent pictures of my finished bodysuit, and all that was left to be done was to ship it.
However that didn't happen.
SO, as everyone told me to do, I tried contacting them through every single medium I could, but to no avail.

Somewhere in there, I sent a message to Prefur, the girl who Esh and Saluna apprenticed under, just asking her if she had a way of contacting them and could give that info to me.

Imagine my surprise, when I suddenly received a message from paypal over my claim dispute, that a tracking number is suddenly available! Damn amazing, given the circumstances.  A day or two later, Prefur messaged me back and explained that she gave Esh the money for shipping my body.  Apparently he has absolutely no money (so sorry to all y'all who are still trying to get refunds) and is just about homeless. 

But, because of Prefur's wonderful amazing help, my finished bodysuit arrived yesterday, and it's actually quite well made (thank god!)

Now, don't you all go and swamp Prefur and beg her for help, she said that she was trying to work on helping people because she felt so bad about how her previous apprentices have acted, but it's not her issue.  And she was exceedingly generous towards me, paying for the shipping and all.  I would even have paid for the shipping, even though I already had, but as we all know, Avsun is pretty much impossible to get a hold of.

So good luck to everyone still fighting for a refund, it really sounds like Esh has absolutely zero money to his name, but at least it seems as though Prefur is being the most wonderful person and trying to help this kerfuffle.

how to tell someone they only own the art

I know I asked this a few years ago, maybe it can be archived.

with the very few people who buy art off of me, one paints at the same place I do(for lessions/workshop) the man likes to collect some art, and has some things from me. He said he'd buy more if I do things he likes.

it is good, it is just I do not know how to properly let him know that he dosen't get the copyright with the artwork. I don't want to sound like a nudge, brat, ninny or any other name you want to use. Or sound nerotic, overly worried.

or is it a case of, "it only counts IF, it is included"?
how does one let a buyer know that "copyright ownership does not come with the art"?

unless it was set up that way and they pay extra for it. Don't you need paperwork for that?


should I also put in tags for this?
