Warning to Artists who drew Canis Claxis

Canis Claxis is famous for threatening artist online and ripping them off, but we blew the whistle on him 2 years ago.   Thanks guys for helping get the word out!  Unfortunately, things have take an ugly turn.

This past weekend I drove up to Mephit Furmeet with my boyfriend Joe and I did not expect any trouble.  I had a great time and it was not until Sunday at 6:30 that the Incident took place. I was stalked and harrassed by this man.

After closing Ceremonies when I was leaving for dinner with my boyfriend, I was accosted in the parking lot by Canis Claxis, who was riled up and demanding his money back after all this time.  I asked him to step away from me and he would not.  He launched a tirade about the $20 from years ago and called me names and ordered me to take down those "lies" I posted about him online.  He repeatedly jabbed his finger at my chest.  Fearing he might be armed, I stepped behind the car door and he continued to assail me with angry accusations.   I spoke calmy and informed him I owed him nothing and I spoke the truth about him, and he should leave.  Remember, this man is legally insane and we are not really sure what he is capable of.  Joe was there so he told Canis Claxis to leave me alone, but Clax just continued to rant about my lies and what he felt was owed to him in a loud angry voice.  Joe told him "You have a lot of problems" and Clax began cussing and flipping us off and yelling and making vague statements to me about "Everyone has told me about you!"  ...whatever that means.

He finally stormed off in a rage, still cussing and flipping us the bird.  I am not sure what would have happened if my boyfriend Joe had not been there.

I alerted Con Security and they pulled his registration information.  He lives in Louisville Kentucky and his badge name was Xalc.  According to the records he checked in Friday morning but no one could remember seeing him in the public areas like the dealer's den.  He was stalking me and possibly Aura Moser who was also there...none of us knew he was going to show up.  He will be banned from future Mephit Furmeets.  Security suggested I file a police report so i did, and the cops arrived at the convention to take my statement.  Canis Claxis was no where to be found.

Here is the thing: the internet is full of wackjobs and nutcases--we all know that.  We laugh it off and warn others about them.  But when they cross over to Real Life and hunt me down at conventions and get in my face, that is another matter.  Considering that most of the artists he threatens are female, we need to watch out for this guy.  He lives in Louisville Kentucky but travels to furry conventions.

Here is what he looks like:

50+ year old white male with Medium length wavy hair...grey roots and brown dye job.  Parted in middle.
Thin wire frame glasses.
Pale thin features.
Indistinct eye color. 
Maybe 5'5" in height, slightly built with pot belly.
Not an imposing figure, but given his mental instability could be violent.

Be warned and call security if you see him.

Holy crap! Thank goodness it didn't escalate any further, and that Joe was there... really glad to hear you're alright.

Thats insane, im sorry you had to go through that craziness o.o
Sep. 5th, 2006 05:02 pm (UTC)
Wow. I am sorry that happened to you. That guy is crazy stuff. I've heard nothing but insanity about him.
Sep. 5th, 2006 05:04 pm (UTC)
Oh crap! o______O
Thank you for alerting me. I can't remember if this is the same nutjob that bugged me.. (The guy who bugged me drew horrible ms paint art.. if I recall right)

Eitherway, this is highly disturbing since I'm in Louisville KY. I'm VERY Grateful to know this information - and this information. Thank you hon for alerting people. This is truly important.

Not sure what to say. I hope you filed a police report on the guy :/ If not. Please do.

Gee-zus Christ that sounds fucking scary. I mean, right out of a fucking horror movie or something. I hope he doesn't bother you guys again. Did you catch the feature Crush Yiff Destroy did on him? http://www.crushyiffdestroy.com/show/clax

I think it is VERY IMPORTANT that we beg for a pre-emptive ban of this man from any other conventions. I dont want this guy at FC, for example. I consider FC my "safe" con, and even though I havent had any dealings with this guy I am of small stature and don't feel comfortable with such a threatening figure in my immediate vicinity.

::nods:: I will warn the appropriate people.

Scarry thanks for heads up hope this doesnt deture you from furhter MFM's
Sep. 5th, 2006 05:44 pm (UTC)
I'm glad nothing really nasty happened to you or Aura, dustmeat. The guy sounds like a mental case.
Sep. 5th, 2006 05:48 pm (UTC)
This guy is a complete nutcase. I'm glad to hear you survived your encounter, and hopefully you'll never see him again.

Yes, PLEASE ban him from FC. I doubt he'd be spending the money to travel to California to complain about a $20 commission, but you never know with people like this...
Sep. 5th, 2006 08:38 pm (UTC)
Lol! I sent you an email with the URL to this post, but it looks like you're already a part of the community. That's a little embarassing, and funny.

Ick, I live in Kentucky and it's scary to think he's so close to me. I want to attend MFM eventually, too. :(

Thanks for the warning!
Sep. 5th, 2006 06:00 pm (UTC)
Hah, you just described 30% of the fandom there ;P

I'm glad you're okay, though I still wanna hit him over the head with a chair and steal his wallet...

Fuck king shit.

Damn... and some thought I was harsh about (signatured) commishions...

...this guy goes psycho if you use a .oo8 Micron instead of a .oo5.


That CYD article is more of a horror story.. it's a nightmare.

I just hope I drop out of this furry junk before I hit age 25...
Sep. 5th, 2006 06:42 pm (UTC)
Hey, there's nothing wrong with being furry over 25. *grin*

Just so long as you're moved out of your parents basement by then!

So that's what the police were there for .... Man, I'm so glad nothing happened outright besides yelling and intimidation. ;.; Some of my friends ended up hanging with Aura Moser this weekend. One of them mentioned the police being there but gone by the time she got downstairs.
Sep. 5th, 2006 06:34 pm (UTC)
Oh goodie, he lives in my new town :p
