Hi, everyone!

I am still at with my artwork and being on social media. However, I am mainly using my twitter now. If you want to see my latest artwork and up-to-date news/links on my "Let's Go Now!" Comic, you can find me on twitter here:

I will still be using my deviantart, just not as often as I used to. It's hard
keeping up with all of my social media accounts while being in school, working, and finding time to make artwork that's not school related (such as the remake of my "Let's Go Now!" sci-fi/fantasy comic and few other ideas that are also a work-in-progress).

I'm still not deleting any of my social media profiles (my wordpress blog, google plus, etc.) because if I decide to go back to using them in some way, I can still do that as well as be able to easily find other web artists that I follow.

I hope everyone's first month into the new year is going well! :)


Update/sort of another post - now my post goes into a bit about Pokemon:

I don't want to include this in another journal entry because the post about what I'm up to with social media might be missed. I don't want to have more than one journal entry on my da profile page either. So, I will type what I want to say below! :)

I recently found out some more information about Pokemon celebrating it's 20th anniversary. (Now I feel old. Lol). Anyway, for anyone that wants to know what kind of awesome products and special mythical pokemon giveaways they're having, check out the following official pokemon website that I found out about the other day on YouTube:

For me, I'm pretty excited about the Mew giveaway at gamestop (for US only I think... I think it's EBgames for Canada? I'd check the website just to be sure, I don't want to give you the wrong info). I'm also a bit interested in that limited Mew plush and Mew card set. (Can you guess which is one of my favorite Pokemon now? Lol ;) ). 

It's been a while since I showed a stronger interest in Pokemon like I used to as a kid, but all this cool events going on especially the release of the gb classics on virtual console (red, blue, yellow on 3ds around the end of feb) and the limited time free viewing of the 1st movie on the pokemon app - I'm feeling pretty nostalgic about it now. I'm glad I haven't thrown out ALL of my Pokemon stuff. (I have a few manga volumes, tcg, and all of the pokemon games that I've gotten/purchased over the years). I wish I kept a Pikachu plush still, just for something fun to have on a shelf in my room and liven it up a little. :P Yet plush dolls are always huge dust collectors. >_<

Here are a few questions I'm going to end this post with ^_^:

What are you planning to do and/or excited about with the 20th anniversary of Pokemon?

On a broader note, what are your plans for the new year?

Mine is to enter a few art competitions to try to get my artwork out there more and to have at least a certain part of my Let's Go Now! Comic remake self-published and submit it to publishers as a portfolio piece for work and for possible publishing consideration as well.

Graphic design - cartooning - sequential art - mixed media

I have always been interested in different art mediums since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I love to draw from the places and people around me, but what I mostly enjoy drawing are ideas from my imagination. I am interested in and create artworks in multiple mediums: cartooning, graphic design, and sequential art. I work in mixed media as well.

I am open to work in the comic industry, the graphic design industry, and any other art position that is needed and available as long as the assignment is sfw.
I am open to working in any art postion that is needed for each project: illustration, print design, logo design, pencilling, inking, lettering, book design, jacket design, and any other art position needed.

For those who are interested, please contact me at: marygogliaartist at gmail (dot) com with the subject line saying: "Art Position for Mary Goglia." (This is to avoid having your email unread, I have been getting a lot of spam. Having guidelines to follow for the subject line and how I typed out my email address will hopefully avoid this issue).

People, companies and other things that inspire me as an artist:

Walt Disney is one of the motivational figures that I look up to. The accomplishments that he has done and the ability of creating moral messages through his works are the qualities that inspires me as an artist, creative thinker, and an individual. I want to create positive, moral messages through my artwork and all that I do in my life.

Archie Comic's Sonic the Hedgehog comic series is another inspiration for me. The varying art styles of drawing the characters from issue to issue made a huge impact on my comicking style. When I was in middle school, this Sonic the Hedgehog comic was what introduced me to comics in a much larger way than any other comic series before and during that time. It sparked my interest in not just reading more comics and appreciating the medium, but in having a goal of wanting to work in the comics industry as an artist for the Sonic comics as well as to make my own comic series. I'm already there with one of my goals, making my own comic series, Let's Go Now!. :) I am currently looking at a few publishers to submit my graphic novel/comic series to once the first volume is completed.

Also, music tends to have a huge influence on my creative works, such as my webcomic Let's Go Now!. If the theme of the song, or at least the way I interpret it, fits with my comic's many themes I usually picture in my head "music videos" of my characters interacting with each other which then leads to plot ideas and more info about my characters. There's way too many to list which bands and songs that have provided inspiration for my comic, although it tends to be hard rock music.

A few stamps that I found on deviantart and like:
Heaven by LaurenEatsChildren SRMTHFG Stamp by MissMonkeyMam

Earth without Art - Stamp - by Gewalgon

Even though I would probably be terrified of my own characters (meaning the villains in my comic, Let's Go Now!): Character Stamp by Arpie
