Beware: Gideon

WHO: Gideon/Gideon Hoss.

WHERE: Elliott's Spring Gathering 2012 / http://www.furaffinity.net/user/gideon

WHAT: Two-character adult pencil sketch, $50.

WHEN: May 5th 2012

PROOF: Initial note on FA inquiring about the status of the commission:

His responses:


My e-mails inquiring about it yet again, over a year later:

His responses:

My latest batch of emails, currently unanswered:


EXPLAIN: Commissioned Gideon in the Dealer's Room at ESG 2012, left my contact information and everything. Paid up-front via Square, bought an art CD, and left. Didn't get any follow-up, so I contacted him a few weeks later. Got his response, saying that he'd finish it after he gets done with the current con. Waited, then asked about it again, and he says he forgot it again. And again. And again.

I commissioned Gideon once before with no problems, it was done in a night. I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and time to take care of his other customers, but in return I've gotten the runaround for a year and a half. There's a point where it just gets too tedious to chase somebody for a silly sketch. I'd just rather get a refund at this point.

UPDATE: RESOLVED
I was given a full refund and an apology. It's over.
