"Back again, tell a friend." (Lol Okay, I'll stop with the Eminem reference XD)  

Man, it's time I at least try to catch up with everyone on deviantart/tapastic let alone getting back to uploading my art! D:
I'm so sorry, guys! >_< (Hope you're not mad). :/

I've been mainly using my twitter profile for social media surfing and positing my art and work-in-progress pieces. A lot of people seem to be using twitter, even large companies, and I like the design of their app which was why I have been using twitter. I also had a very slight social media aversion towards anything else for a while since the shutdown of Inkblazers...
I don't know how to say it exactly but, I felt like for a long time that if I post stuff on social media sites that aren't commonly shown in business ads and such, it'll get deleted or something if that service/site shuts down. I sort of lost my reliance on social media for the most part. And then I got caught up with twitter because a lot of people I follow/wanted to follow are on there. Then the comments on my deviantart and tapastic just grew and I was somewhat overwhelmed by the comments in getting back to everyone... I'll try to get back to everyone on these accounts but please keep in mind it'll take awhile... 

Or should I try to respond to everyone? I mean, there's a lot of old comments I have to reply to, would that user even remember then? :/

I still would prefer to have my own site for my artwork and a comment system in place, but for now I'll use what I can. And I hate the idea of web friends that use tapastic and deviantart thinking I'm ignoring them, which I have no intention of doing so. I also like checking out everyone's artwork on these sites too. I should get back into browsing these sites more.

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

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
