It's been almost a year and a half for me i think. I think I'm out 2 omens and $250. Would be nice to have that back. As much as I love his work and want those pieces I feel he might be out of the art world.

My friend is looking for him too. Paid him a $300 deposit over a year ago, and hasn't heard back after repeated emails. She just wants her money back at this point.

For anyone that knows Justin personally, instead of defending him and saying how great of a guy he is, it would better for everyone if you could contact him and have Justin respond to his customers.

THIS SO MUCH

I can't stand the "oh he's a good dude...something must be up.........." or "he's a stand up dude...quality takes time!"

I've had several QUALITY pieces commissioned and completed in the time I've been waiting on the stuff he owes me..

Here's an idea of how long I've been waiting...remember that dude Mannee? He did a contest and I won a set of 4x6 or so prints by AR....at the time I had said to just toss them in with the pieces I commissioned and send them together LOL

I recently reached out to him and he never responded to it. I asked a buddy that attended his wedding to see if he has heard from him and he said not since the wedding... Not sure what is going on but if he is not telling his friends anything, I really doubt that you will be hearing from him anytime soon. But then again, I could be wrong, I quite often am.

GOOD LUCK!

I just started a thread over in the Toy Talk section. I figured we could keep running tallies of what customizers we've had great transactions with, those who've done us dirty, and those who are just plain slow.

yup...total crap...

This is a BIG reason I've moved on from the scene...particularly has made me about 95% more hesitant to ever have someone commission...

He owes me a ton of crap...

Some good news. I wonder if I should email him to see if he remembered my order or just chill back and wait for him.

Be proactive. Email him with your info and what you're missing.

My fiancee and I have been waiting for our very first commission for a little over 3 years now. Is this a normal thing to wait that long for commissions? We have pretty much given up hope after the countless amount of emails my fiancee and myself sent him. It's gotten to the point to where we're just angry and want the piece we bought and shipped to him back. To add insult to injury, when he received it, he even sent us pictures of it IN HIS HAND. I doubt we will ever see it again.

I'm sure he is a nice dude like everyone is saying, he was super nice before he took peoples money and dropped off the face of the earth. It left us very bitter so please excuse the saltiness of this post. I hope he can get whatever he's going through worked out because it's not cool man. :doubt:

He came out and said we would finish all the commissions that he had, but then disappeared again. I emailed him after he posted the message but have yet to hear from him. Im calling it a loss even though i could really use my money back. he can keep my omens.

Small claims court. If you want to get his attention. Although, you can't do a class action in small claims court, a coordinated effort by everyone victimized by Justin might be best.
