On Feb 25, 2022 I responded to a now deleted commission ad put out by Kancler_vell, and paid $70 USD for a colored headshot. Their email has been left uncensored as it's publicly listed.
On Feb 27th they asked for my email to keep in touch when Russia invaded Ukraine. That was the last I heard from this artist. I have sent follow up messages and received no reply.
Message sent on Instagram:
I've learned from a Russian artist that Kancler_Vell is ok, but is only active on the Russian social media site, VK, on what might be a private profile. So, I sent one last attempt at reaching out.
Edit March 15, 2023: after sending an email to this artist with links to this post, she has gotten in contact with me to figure out our next steps.
Edit 2: Kancler has sent me a refund!
