There are a couple of commissions i've been waiting for for quite a while; one from Gideon I've been waiting for for a little over a year for and one from Bluey that i've been waiting for for about 3.5years.
Even more frustratingly I can't seem to get in touch with either of them! I've tried sending them both messages in almost every way I can think of but i've heard nothing back from either of them for ages!
Anyone know of a way to get in touch with either of them? At this point i'd be happy if they just gave my money back if they don't intend to do the artwork. :-/

I posted something about the troubles with Bluey, some months back, and she got in touch to say she would send the money back to me but that was ab out 3 months ago and since then no emails I have sent to her have been responded to.

Gideon rarely answers emails online. The only time I see him get commissions done are at the conventions themselves.

Gideon has an FA page, but I doubt he'll answer, as he is extremely busy. Like Risperidal said above, best way to catch him is at cons. He goes to a lot of them, and always posts an FA journal before he goes to one.

He should be. I would just bother them until they either do it or refund the money to get you out of their hair. I know another friend who is dealing with another artist who is 2 years overdue, yet still does daily requests.

"Out of curiosity, busy with what?"

Work.
Whilst school is a pain in the ass, work takes up even more of your time and energy. An unforeseen project might have popped up, a deadline, he might be working his ass off because colleagues are sick, were fired, got knocked up and whatnot. I know Gideon and he's not the type to sit around and do nothing, but I admit he's a hard man to get hold of.

He's a freelancer as far as I know, but that doesn't mean he's actually "free".

Howdy Garr!! Yah, it has been way too long and I deserve to keep in better touch with you, that I have no excuse. Use my gmail, my yahoo and macrophile e-mails are total crap, but the gmail is one I use often, at: gideon.hoss@gmail.com

Thanks and I wanna get this done and finished for you. ^_^

Ah, I just sent you a p-mail on Furrymuck about this, that'll teach me to scroll down first next time :3

I'll pay you back for Blueys sometime. Do you attend AC or other cons? And I don't want her to know. She is unable to draw. I am not at liberty to say why. But it is serious. And has virtually vanished off the face of the internet.

Actually, another friend of Bluey's has just offered to reimburse the cost. but I appreciate the offer all the same :)

FYI, I did get your e-mail... just been busy with Christmas shopping and whatnot. I also need to put some cash back into my Paypal account, which may take up to a week to transfer. So, just letting you know I got your mail. :)

That's cool, I assumed as much :) At this time of year, between holidays and illness, it's only to be expected all round :)

Thanks, Lex. I'm handling Garr's situation atm. :)

I had a bad experience with Gideon several years back. I ordered a few CDs, but after sending payment never received anything. No replies to emails, and only had a reply much later when I posted a question publicly on his LJ. Two rounds of "oh I've been busy, but I promise I'll mail it out this week" later I gave up and chalked it up as a loss.

Good luck with your situation.

So how goes the gideon commission.. Just curious because I've commissioned him last year this month and it's the same way with me. I've sent replies and e-mails but I only get an e-mail about once every 3-4 months with pretty much the same reply wesfox described. To be honest, I really wouldn't mind that wait at all if he just kept me informed. And the fact that I see other people replying on FA for similar reasons doesn't make me feel any better.

He and I bounced a couple of messages back and forth at the beginning of December but I haven't heard from him since then; but with the holidays and everything that's not really too surprising.

True... but even the simplest reply would be appreciated.
