I have waited, and waited and waited.. and now, after many chances, I am frustrated.
WOMBAT BOI or MOTHBALL WOMBAT
I was sitting next to this person in Artist's Alley at Anthrocon 2008. I noticed he was selling tiny crocheted animals. They were adorable. The smallest kind was being sold for $8.00
He bought a badge from me for $8.00.. and I bought one of the small canine-type animals from him for $8.00. I'm pretty sure I still have the receipt.
I gave him a doodled reference and contact information on a 3x5 notecard. He said he'd start working on it as soon as he got home. I don't have specific times or anything, after this-- because I was busy, myself.
Anthrocon was in late June. I contacted him again in August or September. Again, he asked for the references and my address.
I contacted him in November. He claimed that he had just started college, and left all of his yarn and hooks at home. He said he'd get them when he was at home for Christmas break. He asked for my address again... D:
I contacted him in December. He apologized for taking so long and offered to do an additional critter. I agreed.. He sounded sincere-- uh, yeah.. over the internet. I fail. He asked for my address again, because he'd lost it again.. I gave it.. again.
It's April.. and I haven't even seen him online. He has disappeared, and I haven't sent him his badge yet. :/ I'm not going to make a big fuss over $8.00, I guess..... but.. you know.
This person is really bad at keeping contact with their commissioners, and taking an ungodly amount of time for something they claimed they could finish in 3-4 hours.
Does anyone have any contact information? Anything helpful?
If the issue isn't resolved, I will be attempting to inform Duncan daHusky -- AA director, that this person has an outstanding commission, and that it needs to be taken care of. From what I hear, they are pretty good about enforcing that. :)
