I commissioned an artist inside the Anthrocon Dealer's Den earlier today at roughly 1 PM for a pony conbadge of my character Murderhusky for 18$. I left a badge from another artist with her as a reference. I was told to come back to pick up my commission at 3:30. Everything was fine.
However, the art show ended up having problems with the credit card machine and so picking up art there ended up taking me almost 30 minutes - by that time, the dealer's room had closed and staff would not allow me to see the artist to get my badges without being a dealer myself.
I waited outside to see if she would come out - I never saw her.
Here's where the problem comes:
Jeremy Morin is the name that appeared on my debit card transaction. However, that transaction was processed by the Square device for iPhones - and it was not the artist's phone, rather someone who was at the booth with her. Anthrocon staff is entirely unhelpful - they refuse to give me the artist's alias or anyway to contact her. Their only answer is to e-mail them after the convention and they will forward the info - however, because the only name I have is Jeremy Morin, which I don't think is hers, that won't work either.
Hilariously, further making things complicated is that the badge was of a character named Murderhooves, which is not my alias - so even if she attempted to look ME up by searching for Murderhooves, she won't find me.
So, I'm looking for an artist who was taking commissions for pony conbadges for 18$ in the Anthrocon Dealer's Den on 6/17/2012 at 1 PM. She was with someone by the name of Jeremy Morin who was processing debit transactions for her. If anyone has any information, I would be very happy.
I know this is an extremely early post as I literally commissioned them four hours ago (as of writing), but my concern is that once this convention is over we will never be able to find each other - both of us only have names that aren't tied to ourselves: she has a name of my character, not me, and I have a name of her boothmate, not her.
My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org, which I can be reached at instantly.
This isn't a beware so I don't think it's necessary, but if anyone needs proof I can screenshot the debit transaction.
