Graphic design - cartooning - sequential art - mixed media
My name is Mary Goglia. I am currently attending college for an Associates Degree in Graphic Design.
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).
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!.
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.
My smackjeeves account (where I follow other webcomics):
Some of my artwork:
Likes: comics, reading, video games, history, science, sci-fi stories, storytelling, Disney, animations, graphic design
Dislikes: Negative events in the news (acts of violence, for example), adult rated (and beyond that) content, bullying, art theft
My goal is to inspire others in creating artwork and to make the world a safer, peaceful place through the comic stories that I tell. The goal of most of my comic projects is not just to entertain, but to address deeper meanings that I believe will be a positive influence to everyone who reads them.

Even though I would probably be terrified of my own characters (meaning for the villains in my comic, Let's Go Now!):
The following link is to my inkblazers account, a webcomic hosting site, where you can read my current webcomic project and other future webcomic projects.
Please note any older links that I have on my social networking accounts are to mangamagazine.net instead of inkblazers.com. Mangamagazine was the original name of inkblazers and both links still work to the same site. Just mentioning to avoid any possible confusion.
