Should a guy maybe turn down a project or two and take the time to do your fudge? After that point he can just stop subscriptions for an indeterminate period of time and take all the jobs on he wants. Just saying.
Yeah I totally agree. There's no reason to be concerned with previous obligations. I mean he already has our money. Don't turn down any job, ever. No matter how large the backlog. Just collect those checks, and when he doesn't have time, just tell people "sorry, but you already paid. I'll get to you as soon as these other people have finished paying me. Might be a year or more, but don't be a dick about it. I'm busy."
The truths a Bitch. :D

I am all about timelyness. But patience is the cornerstone of this hobby.
I hope you all get your tubes.
I hope Mark's life stuff goes ok.
I hope that we eventually get the Duel and Hook prints.
Excited for the next director series later this year.
Lots of hopes and dreams for me.

Maybe shipping fast is a better option at this time...

Agreed, having to face facts and being held accountable is tough when you haven't got your ducks in a row....

With this mentality, you should expect posts like the ones above.

Mark has a lot of people who support him by sharing his projects and mentioning that he's a great guy, etc. but monetary support is a completely different thing. It's a business transaction. These transactions will decrease if people don't get what they ordered. There at least should've been an update every couple of weeks about what's going on once the shipment has been delayed for more than 2 months. Mark has definitely emailed people back and given refunds without question, thankfully, but this is a general courtesy for paying customers. In this day and age, if you're seen posting all over social media and constantly releasing posters and prints without fulfilling your previous duties, you will get called out on it.

Ok, just to reinstate, you're not in the sub and have nothing owed to you but feel this strongly about Mark? Dude, you should be the Polyfather, that's dedication! Cheers! :clap:

All fair points and valid concerns. Eventually you just got to hold him to what you paid for come hell or high water. I completely agree, if he's three months late, it's important to make your opinion known that it's not okay.
