Continued troubles with Gideon.

About 4 months ago I posted on here about trying to get int ouch with Gideon and another artist. The situations with the other artist got resolved and Gideon got in touch with me; since then however I've heard nothing from him.

Back in September 2007 I commissioned Gideon and now more than a year and half later i've still not even seen so much as a sketch.
I've tried sending him emails, private messages on LJ and FA and i've sent him messages on AIM. The only time i've managed to get his attention was last time I posted on here.

Gideon, please get in touch with me!
At this point, unless you've actually started work on the commission, i'd rather just take the money back and leave it no hard feelings.

Hmm, hasn't been on FM in 3 weeks either. Maybe you can ask Uncle Kage if Gideon's okay? He might know more.

From my personal experience, he rarely answers emails, but from what I've noticed is he pretty much only finished commissions at cons.

Your best bet is to just go to a con that he goes to. He always goes to the ones I go to, and just refresh his memory.

What! You think that is a good idea? You think it's a good idea for a customer, who has paid for their artwork, to travel to a con which would cost them more money, just to remind the artists that something is owed?

I'mr ather of the same mind as others who have commented, but I did remind him in person at AC last year. to which he apologise and said that he hadn't even started it yet; he said basicly the same thing 4 months ago too.

I'm sorry that the only way you've been able to get him to respond is by posting in this community. You shouldn't have to publicly post something about your troubles to get him to care.

May I suggest, if this post does not work, filing a claim with the Better Business Bureau. I've found it to work wonders. And even if it didn't, leaves a good mark. Couple of those and no business by he shall be had at all.

He has Strider's sketchbook here at FWA (they're doing a trade). I'll try to poke him about this post if I see him.
