1.What program do you use to draw with?
I use Photoshop CC almost exclusively. For non digital pieces I usually use micron pens and copic markers.
2.What kind of tablet do you use to draw with?
I have a Wacom Intuos Pro.
3.Do you usually scan a drawing from paper and then color digitally?
I draw entirely digitally. Well, actually, that’s not entirely true. I actually do a lot of traditional drawings, which you can see on my Instagram.
4.Do you take requests/trades/commissions/suggestions for comics?
At the present I am not open for commissions.
As for requests and art trades, I rarely rarely do either of those. You can ask, but I can almost guarantee the answer will be “No”.
If you have an idea for a killer comic, feel free to message me. Although, truly, you should draw the comic yourself! If you have a fantastic idea and a great message, no one cares about your drawing skills.
5.How long have you been drawing? How did you start?
I have been drawing since about 1st grade (I won a blue ribbon at the country fair, nbd). But I didn’t really start to take my art seriously until sophomore year of high school (four years ago).
6. Where does your inspiration come from?
I’m inspired by all the amazing artists here on the web! 90% of the people I follow on tumblr/deviantart/instagram are artists who inspire me.
Whether it be their drawing style, their use of color, or even the fantastic ideas for comics/paintings, each artist I follow offers something to the art realm that I find absolutely fantastic!
If I had to choose a few of my biggest inspirations, it would have to be Fukari, Viria, Britt Meyers, Loish and HamletMachine.
As for what inspires my comics, that all stems from things that happen to me in my life. For example, one of my most popular drawings "Drowning", was created in a dark time of my life where I was feeling weighed down by everything life demanded of me.
7.Can I use one of your drawings as my wallpaper/icon or use it for video/project?
I would be honored! Just make sure you properly credit me.
8.Can I use your drawing as a reference?
Sure thing! But, again, you will need to properly credit me. And, to be truthful, there’s way better artists out there to reference from.
9.What does your nickname mean?
Moga is the name my parents gave me when I was like a couple months old. It’s short for Mowgli, the main character in The Jungle Book.
10. What’s your real name?
11.How old are you? When is your birthday?
I am 22 and my birthday’s May 24th
12. Where are you from and what languages do you speak?
I am from the pacific northwest, United States and I speak English and French.
13. Did you go to art school?
I never went to art school! But I did graduate from the University of Oregon with a degree in Digital Arts, as well as minors in Business and Comics & Cartoons Studies. I also dabbled in Womens & Gender Studies, French, and Anthropology.
If you still have a question that I didn’t answer here, feel free to ask! I promise I don’t bite!
Have an amazing day
