GeltyDrake - Commission Incomplete

WHO:
GeltyDrake

WHERE:
http://www.furaffinity.net/user/geltydrake/

WHAT:
$30 color digital, two character commission, with minimal background, no physical work to be mailed

EXPLAIN:
Multiple conversations via FA notes over the last two years have produced only one rough sketch. Artist has busy work schedule and possibly had health issues in the Fall of 2010.
Requests for the artist to finish or refund my money have been met with apologies, but no artwork or refund. Artist continues to take commissions from others and post new artwork.

TIMELINE:
01/27/10 (Day 0) - Initial note sent on FA, accepted and paid $30 via Paypal (Images a,b,c,d)
04/07/10 (Day 70) - Artist apologizes for delays and sends proof sketch, which I approve (Images e,f,sketch)
10/09/10 (Day 255) - I ask for another update, artist apologizes again and offers his MSN messenger info to stay in touch (I don't use MSN messenger, but it was a nice gesture) (Images j,k,l,m)
05/26/11 (Day 484) - Artist deletes his gallery and journals, but the next day apologizes and starts over (Image journals)
