WHEN: The payment of the piece was done in May of 2013

Attempt to contact began in January 2014


The agreement was done through an order form using a google program and then contact continued through emails. I have since lost the emails of EC speaking to me but I do have an email proving I sent her my address at the time of the transaction. http://imgur.com/a/KdELS#3

Here is the paypal receipt for the piece as well. http://imgur.com/a/KdELS#4

EXPLAIN: Beginning in May of last year EC posted a journal saying she was selling painted badges as an iron artist for $30 plus print. Interested I got in contact with her and agreed to the print amount which I then paid her for. The Journal specified that it would be started within a week of purchase. On my part I fell out of FA contact for a large amount of time because of life, etc. When I finally came back I remembered the piece that I had ordered from EC. I went and checked my messages, EC's pages, any where I could to see if she had done the work yet. The work was not done and she had a mark next to the painted badges on her page saying they were on hold. Once the on hold tag had been removed I waited a few more weeks before looking to get into contact with her. I needed to let her know of the change of address that had happened very recently. With the note unanswered I emailed her looking to let her know of my change of address and my need to have some questions answered about the commission. The third note I sent her was much like the email; change of address, questions, and letting her know it was my third attempt at contact. When she didn't answer those I ventured to post a comment on the journal I originally ordered the piece from and waited til she was active again on FA. She streamed the next day and my comment went unanswered thus I left a shout on her page. The shout has been there while she has been active and it has gone unanswered as well.

UPDATE: EC posted a journal 2/11/14 saying anyone that she owes work to will me messaged within the week or if no contact is made the commissioner is to contact her. I'll update again when I hear from her in the next few weeks.

UPDATE 2: Well it is now 2/25/14 since EC posted the journal and I heard no word from her and the note I sent her has been completely ignored and left unread on FA. I'm getting desperate, I have no way of contacting the artist and because of the length of time it took to try and fix this I'm in no way able to get my $30 back. I will just have to right this one off as a loss, if I hear anything else I'll let everyone here know.

UPDATE 3 (Final Update Until Resolution) - (2/27/14) After contacting EC's mate in a final ditch attempt of getting a hold of her I was finally graced with a note. There was a conversation between the two of us with the final note from her carrying a slightly more aggressive tone then necessary but it comes down to the wait now as I am interested in the work and not the money as I am trying to help not hinder. I just wish she would prioritize her back log more then one attempt a week within which I still believe newer commissions from the backlog are being worked on over the older commissions.
Artist's beware has moved!

I ordered five "dollar doodles" from them back around the end of February last year. I received a few, but am still waiting on the rest. I left them a shout back in April with no response, and then a few weeks ago asked about them when they opened up for more dollar commissions. They said they would get done, but didn't say when.

Hopefully they'll be contacting me about them this week along with their other commissioners.

Yes let's hope, she's not a bad artist she just has bad time management and working on her backlog. Keep in mind if she doesn't message you within the week throw her a note, she said to do so, it can't hurt to give it a shot then.
