First of all, to those that read my last journal entry, thanks for replying.

Today, I went into town and met up with my local friends, including :iconandynortonuk:. It's been about 3 years since I last attended a Saturday afternoon group, and in light of what's been happening lately, I hope to do it again more, especially once things have calmed down at home.

On my way back home, I was talking about my mum, and something of curiosity came to me.
I can't remember if I said this before, but I am currently unemployed, as in not doing a paying job. I volunteer at a nearby charity shop on Fridays but that's about it. I used to have a couple part time jobs, but stress got in the way, and I lost them.

I guess it hardly occurred to me if even well known artists like Eric Schwartz and Max the Black Rabbit had any other paying jobs?
Same can be said for any artists here on DA, including my friends like :icongreycat-rademenes: and :iconfox-mccloud:?
I don't know what I'll be doing in the near future, but I don't think I'd want a full time job like my mum had, unless it's something I'll actually enjoy more than the hobbies I'm doing now.

Recently I said about retiring from working on the Megamink series, but I changed my mind at the start of this year. Now I'm not sure what's going to happen.
I have been thinking once I have finished the current sketchpad I've been using to draw out the Megamink comics, I might start writing out Megamink adventures again, if I get back into writing. And if decided, the new written Megamink adventures will begin the next chapter in the Megamink series.
But don't get your hopes up just yet, as I might also consider retiring the series, but continue to draw out the characters, if motivated to do so, and the written story could be the conclusion to the comics.
This summer will also mark the 20th anniversary of when I attempted to reboot the Megamink series to be published as a series of story books, but I had a lack of experience as a writer, and most stories were never sent to any local publishers.

In short, all future ideas for Megamink are unknown at this point.

I had also thought back to my old High Tech Heroes series, featuring myself and some of my friends as a Power Rangers parody. If I took the appearances of the real people, change them, and pass them off as new fictional characters with different names, along with some other changes, I could start a new series of adventures, but that's just an idea I haven't even tried working on yet.

The weekly Cotswold Critters comics will continue, with Milton and Ascott in one page comic strips.

That's all for now. Regarding my questions about jobs, if well known artists have other paying jobs or not, please let me know.

Sorry for not posting my next journal entry, explaining more that was on my mind, but it appears I still have a lot on my mind, and the stress at home still exists.

This week, some changes are likely to happen, and I'm not 100% sure yet if there will be positive results, or negative, but I think the grieving over the loss of my father is getting to me in a bigger way.
I can't remember if I already said this before, but I recently there was an open day at the old middle school I went to, before scheduled to be demolished. So I attended it, and thought back to some old memories. The downside is I hardly saw any of my friends there, not even the ones I'm still in contact with on Facebook. Being there made me miss them more than ever.

I also miss many friends here, who I have seemed to have lost contact with, either if they are busy with other things and don't have time to talk, or my behaviour over the years have pushed them away from me.
If any of you listed below happens to read this please let me know if we're still friends.
:icondogprince69: :iconignatian-mystic: :iconshadowlore: :icongreycat-rademenes:

I know I still occasionally talk to the following.
:icontheindustrialgarratt: :iconcartoonkingdb: :iconboomsonic514: :icondth1971: :icontails-2-me: :iconandynortonuk: :iconfox-mccloud: :iconchipmunkraccoonoz:

And then there's some I am not sure of, as I still hear from them, but haven't have had much contact with lately, to talk to.
:iconskiffykitten: :iconrkerekes13: :iconjenny-87: :iconbetterwatchit:

If I missed anyone, I apologise. And if any of my friends read this, please let me know if we are still friends.


Also, during my grieving state, I have been a bit stressing over my Megamink series. I'm still doing the comics as you have seen, and I am working on new ideas in my head, but I'm not sure yet what the future holds. However I shall still work on the weekly Cotswold Critters comics, as they are just simple one page comic strips, rather than a serialised story line.

Another thing that has gotten me down and stressed is knowing that the external hard drive I got to back up all my videos etc might last only five years, and the stress has also made me wonder if I should still continue making fan videos.
I have started another My Little Pony fan video, but I wonder if I should take a break from making videos or not?

Finally, in light of actually missing the days when I spent time with my friends, I wanna try and meet up with my local friends, even ones I haven't seen since my school days, as long as it gets me out of the house once in a while, at least during this depressing time.

Hi everyone, my DA name is Megamink1997, named after my original cartoon series about a furry superhero, and the year he was created. :)

I'm a furry artist that likes to draw furry characters, mostly my original characters from the Megamink series which is kinda like a furry/manga series with some fan service, as well as the concept of good vs evil.
Sometimes I do fan art, mainly Sonic fan art, among some other things, and I like to write Sonic fan fiction.

I like most types of music, but mostly pop, classic rock and heavy metal.

I also do commissions during any spare time I might have, so please don't rush me if you want me to do any.

Here are the prices.
£5 for a shaded pencil drawing.
£10 for a drawing highlighted in pen.
£20 for a highlighted drawing coloured in with photoshop.
£30 for a highlighted drawing coloured in with coloured pencils.

If you have a PayPal account, you can pay me using that. And I'll do my best to carry out the commission. And I'll send the money back if I am unable to draw the picture.

If you're interested, please send me a note with "Commission" as the subject title. And let me know what you want me to draw, and I'll note you back if I am able to draw it or not. :)

I should also point out I no longer do requests, but if you can't pay for a commission, then an art trade can be the next option. :)

I have looking of your art before but I must say your artstyle is so wonderful and your OC are so cute and lovable. You definitely have a so observant eye to draw well-designed foxes. :D :heart:

BTW, I see you are a fan of that 80s TV show which it's name ''The Raccoons''. I'm a Canadian myself who was alive when the series was in air (It's a cartoon show from Canada) and it been shown here for many years until in the past decade for fill their quotas.

Such wonderful memories! You don't see such Canadian animation like this thesedays. :(

Hey Stephen, I left you a couple of private notes over a month ago now that still appear unread. It doesn't bother me if you never respond to them, but I want to be able to stay in social contact with you and others in the U.K. so could you please at least look at them ASAP so I could at least know that you received them and that the dreaded Article 13 hasn't taken effect in your country yet! :worry: :please:

Sorry about that. I have been busy with other things to read them. Luckily the article 13 hasn't happened, yet. Hopefully it never will.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, Stephen! Happy Birthday Godliek :D happy DA B-day :3 Birthday cake  icon  :party:

I would like to apologize for my very belated shout, I've been aware and had been kicking myself a lot lately for not finally getting around to doing it when I had the time and making up excuses to myself for not doing it sooner and I just realized I have almost procrastinated to the very end of the month, now here at the spur of the last minute I simply wanted to make sure I did so before April Fools Day so you wouldn't think I was being insincere. :uneasy: 


I'm also sorry that I didn't speak to you sooner when you I learned that were going through a personal loss, I would like to catch up with you on some things and explain a lot more though, but I'd like to do it privately, so I'll send a note as soon as possible.


And, for whatever it's worth now, you have a happy birth month!..bye  :)
