In 2008, Glockgal was interviewed for The Quidditch Pitch as the Artist of the Month for December 2007.

See Quidditch Pitch Interview Series.

The interview's introduction reads:

"Glockgal is our artist of the month! She has done so much for the Qudditch Pitch besides just being a our interviewee. She particpated [sic] in our fundraiser. She drew Featured Story of the Year cover art, and she's been very supportive of the site. She's a super great gal as well as a brilliant artist!"

Some Excerpts

Ahhh! [my favorite character to draw has] gotta be a tie between Harry....and all the Weasleys. They count as one, right? One family!

I don't really have an OTP because it's kinda fun to draw everyone with everyone. :D But if I HAD to choose, I'd say Arthur/Molly.I can't see them with anyone else. They're like the Homer and Marge of the HP world.

Hee, right now, it's a toss up between watercolours and digital [for my preferred medium]. There is so much I can do digitally which makes it fun to explore. And watercolours are just so fun and delightful to work with!

The beauty about the fanart community is the amount of different viewpoints and styles are introduced and how much I can learn from every single artist I see. It is especially lucky to be in the HP fandom, because fanart is so prolific and there are always new artists debuting.

I think most people know that when an artist takes a commission, they're doing work and therefore have to take their 'fangirl' hat off for a bit.

That said, I would get as much information directly from the author as possible.

Even if I do have time to read the story, sometimes I'll miss a detail or interpret something differently so it's always best to get all the specific info straight from the writer
