More news on the story about Michael Golden scamming those who commissioned sketches from him and wanted them in the promised timeframe. He’s still delivering pictures of characters telling the customers “Patience is a virtue.”
Another of the complainers received a lecture sketch. (Scroll down to Michael Finn’s post.) It appears that in this one, Golden has learned how to spell “virtue”. Finn hasn’t posted an image yet because he’s hoping for a solution amenable to both sides.
I suspect he’s going to be disappointed, based on art rep Renee Witterstaetter’s insistence that Golden did nothing wrong in the Comics Journal forum thread on the topic.
Some of the commenters raise a good point … buying sketches sight unseen for large amounts of money is a scary way to do business, and there’s no recompense if you’re disappointed with something that looks dashed off. Unfortunately, lots of it gets lost in a personal spat amongst posters and someone writing paeans to how gorgeous Golden’s work was years ago. Skip to page six, where Renee (as “Evaink”) shows up blaming the customers. She also posts a second time to say
Sorry, I am not going to address this here no matter how the slant is put. Way to much to go into, and as I mentioned, I am not going to air Michael’s business on a public forum like this.
Which is odd, since she’s already tried to address it, only to be laughed at.
