Cons: Contacting Commissioners (Whew alliteration!)

This isn't really a beware or warning, but more me asking artists a favor. If you ask someone who commissions you for a phone number and then say you'll call that night, please make sure you actually call. Even if it's to say "I'm sorry, but I didn't finish it in time, something came up. I'll hopefully finish it tomorrow morning" or something like that. I've been left hanging on a commission from an artist at FC and I am in the process of trying to track down what's going on. Now I'm home from the con and out money and have no arts. I'm a sad panda.

I guess really just keep in mind that us folks who pay artists to make pretty arts (and not so pretty arts sometimes) can't read minds. It's important to keep us in the loop as to what's going on, especially if we pay up front (and when you have our contact information there's no excuse not to).
