Lost Contact - WhiskeyAgogo

Who: WhiskeyAgogo

Where: http://www.furaffinity.net/user/whiskeyagogo/

What: 1-character color commission as part of a Video Game Cosplay portfolio.

When: Commission info for my part in the portfolio and payment for my commission was sent on May 31st 2011.

All contact was done through the FurAffinity note system.

This was my first note to Whiskey, asking for a slot in her portfolio.

Note 2 (Payment): http://imageshack.us/a/img845/3886/whiskeyproof02.png
Slot was confirmed and payment was sent. Unfortunately, I don't remember how much each slot was, but I'm not looking for a refund of any sort, just the art I paid for.

Note 3 (Journal): http://imageshack.us/a/img72/3766/whiskeyjournal.png
About a year ago (Jan 2012) Whiskey posted this journal saying she was going to scrap the portfolio idea and just complete the pictures as individual commissions. I left a comment about 2 months ago asking for an update and I haven't heard back from her yet.

I'm not sure this really counts as a Beware as my main concern is just hearing back from Whiskey on when she might finish my art. So I don't know if it belongs here or not, and I apologize if I'm off the mark. I just figured I'd have better luck asking you guys.

By looking at her FA gallery, it looks like it has been eight months since she posted new art, and six months since she posted a journal. Her last journal post indicates she's moving, but after six months I'd imagine she'd have that sorted out. I hate to make this post, as every other time I've commissioned her for art she was professional and courteous, and I otherwise have nothing but good things to say about her. Still, while she has posted a few pictures from this (ex)portfolio, I haven't seen so much as a sketch of my picture and I'd dearly love to get some kind of progress report from her, as I've been waiting since May 2011. Again, I'm not looking for a refund or to cause any grief for her, just information.

Update: I've managed to contact Whiskey, first via her Twitter account and then via an e-mail address she gave to me, and we have worked things out with her agreeing to either finish the artwork or provide a refund if she is unable to do so. Thanks, guys.

whiskey's fairly active on twitter!

she did move (twice, recently) but things are more or less settled now and i'm sure if you poke her there she'll respond.

That's good to know. I was half afraid something had gone wrong since she's been quiet so long. Thanks for the heads up on her Twitter account, too. I'll give that a shot.

I think this can be tagged as resolved now.

When the OP tells us that they've either A) got their art or B) got their refund, not that there was an agreement to them, we will mark it resolved.

Oh, whoops. I didn't realize that wasn't sufficient as I had only posted this with the intention of getting in contact with her. Sorry about that. Whiskey and I have been in touch since I made the update, and after some conversation I decided to just drop the whole matter.

In that case, as long as you're satisfied, I'll be happy to mark this lost contact post as resolved. Thank you for updating us!

Yes, please do, and thank you.
