started a Band of Brothers commission in 2014. as of today, one print has been completed and shipped to members. some have yet to receive it though, if I remember correctly. the commission started with big promises of "confirmations" from Walker, Danger, Englert, and more. used a great scheme had to buy print x from welker to be able to buy print y from Danger, so forth and so on. all tied in together. little by little, delay by delay. artists dropping here and there. but good thing Steve collected money from everyone years ago! Danger dropped off a few months back and Steve processed refunds. after haggling around and taking forever. basically refusing to believe the truth that was about to hit him.
Welker just dropped and now Steve has decided to keep some members money, if they have already sent money for other parts of the ten part series. see quote below:
Because of the predicament I have been put in with a large number of people refusing to fulfill their commitments, the only people I will be able to refund on "The Last Patrol" will be those who are not financially committed to "The Breaking Point" and/or "Points," and/or who are in on "Carentan" only but are fully paid up. I don't want to use money across projects but my hand has been forced by those who didn't pay, and because the same thing might occur on the other two that are either in motion or pending, I don't want to be in a situation where I need to pay out of my pocket for overages on costs or for people who refuse to pay for printing. If you paid the full amount on all of them, the reason I still won't be refunding is because we may end up underestimated like on "Carentan" for color separating and printing costs.
Steve has had members money for years and has kicked members from the group due to causing the fiasco of questioning where our money is and why we can't get refunds if the artists aren't working or even starting work on it.
Steve owes me $200 total for the Welker and Englert parts of the commission that will never happen. I am sure there are others missing more, some missing less.
but enough is enough... dream is over.
*afterpost edit- I have written off this money, I will likely never see it. but I want others to know what they're getting into if they decide to do business with him whether sale, trade, etc.
