What: Digital Art Commission

When: January 2014 - Present

Proof:
FA Notes
Emails

Explain: On January 20th, 2014 decided to get commission picture together.
I got a hold of Swizzlestix asking first if he was open, worked out the details, sent him the payment on his Paypal and Swizzle gave me his Skype.
After around five to six months I tried messaging Swizzle on Skype however he seemed to ignore any sort of contact by being all ways DnD.
Swizzle posted http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6309942/ on December 1st, 2014 got in contact again with email this time.
He got back to me after the first email, but after that hasn't said anything since then to me and others in the journal or his shout box and has either wiped his inkbunny account clean or it was suspended.

Update [05/28/15] : On 05/09/2015 I emailed Swizzle saying I wanted a refund on the commission I ordered back in January 2014. The next day he sent a email apologizing saying he couldn't give me a ETA for a refund but offered to do the picture in a stream the following week and took his offer. We setup when the stream would happen Sunday 05/24/15 , missed the date due to a mishap and got the stream going Tuesday 05/26/15 and he just finished shading the picture today.

Thanks for posting, I was hoping I wasn't the only one that felt that he needed reporting.

His IB account was indeed suspended, there is a notice about it on his page. A damn shame as always, hopefully he'll return to his FA at least.

I doubt it. As of writing he owes a former friend of mine a commission from 2013.

Swizzlestix has always seemed to be almost impossible to reach unless you're one of his close friends. He goes months at a time without checking a lot of his sites. Unfortunately, I'm outside of that circle and don't know of a solution.
