Good day. I want to apologize that I have not been updating lately. I had surgery very recently and I am still recovering. Drawing is something that seems to not come as easily when I am on this pain medication. Once I heal, I will definitely start drawing again.
Also, as some individuals know, I enjoy purchasing art from different artists. I usually do not have problems. I get my art in a comfortable amount of time and everything is great. However, recently I have ordered art from a few different individuals and I have been waiting months even a year or so for my art. I am not talking about hard-core high art paintings. I am talking about colored sketches and the such. I am getting very frustrated with havering to contact these individuals over and over again. Normally, I am a very kind person. I even waited five years for art that I paid for. No one should have to do this.
Art is a business. Artists need to treat this like a business. I am hoping these will be resolved soon, because I am starting to feel like it is not worth the investment to me anymore. I really like some of these artists, but it feels like I have been stung one too many times by different artists waiting on time.
Now, most of the people I buy for are very fast, or contact me if there is an issue. I can understand if I am contacted directly. I should not have to read journals. Contact ME if I paid YOU money to get work done.
I am venting. I know. I have gone through this for a few years now, and I don't want to be overly nice about it anymore. I am going to let every artist know that if I am to be a client, I need my art in a certain amount of time or I will not be their client. I don't mean like a day or so. Heck, I am okay with it taking a month if it isn't some incredibly difficult piece. It should not take six months to do a sketch.
This is not pointed at most artists. There are just a few that I really liked... and I almost feel betrayed.
