On FC Art Auctions.

I know this isn't exactly the place to post this, but I figure there's so many artists here, it's a good place to start.

At FC2005 there was a piece in the art auction, "Gryphon Guard" by Goldenwolf. I put a bid down on it, but the Con ended and I went home without realising that I'd actually won it! I got an email from one of the FC organisers a week or so later informing me of this and asking me to get in touch to arrange payment and shipping on the piece. So I emailed him back, informed him I was in the UK but I'd be happy to work something out.

Two weeks went by and I heard nothing, so I emailed him again. Still nothing. At that point I simply gave it up and actually forgot all about it till today.

So I guess I'm curious to know if anyone here knows Goldenwolf, and knows if that particular piece has been sold? If not, I'd still love to buy it!

Thanks for your time and help!

Why not send her over an e-mail yourself? She does have a website. http://goldenwolfen.com/

You are not the only one who placed a bid at the FC auction only to find out afterwards via email that you won. I also am having a less than encouraging time trying to pay for and ultimately receive the piece. I am in routine regular contact with the artist, a friend, who in my case is someone else. But the challenge is completing the transaction through FC. At the current moment I am attempting to achieve success through other channels. We shall see.

I am under the distinct impression that some sort of SNAFU caused the printout of auction winners to be incomplete, as I was listed as the winner of another piece which I paid for at FC and have had in my hands since that day.

Goldenwolf actually has a lj, you can start by dropping her a line there, since she isnt answering her emails :).(the link to her LJ is on her website page) Otherwise talk to chmarr. He might give you her real contact info, ie: address, phone number from the records.

Her, Goldenwolf is a female.
Personally I think your best bet is via a friend since she doesn't seem to be responding to e-mail.

The 'him' refers to the FC organiser, not Goldenwolf, I think. :p

And yeah, her e-mail does seem to have withered up and died. Is she just really busy, or what?
