Hoggle by JesseAcosta
David Bowie's death really has affected me. My heart hangs heavy today. He was not just a musician, but a cultural icon. He was a true Midas, everything he touched in the entertainment business turned into gold. Thank you Bowie for everything you have given us.

One thing I've always been searching for, whether it's a group on deviantart, or even on Facebook, is a quality group of cartoonists that discuss work and give quality feedback to each other. 
Time and time again, when I join possible cartoonist groups, they always end up places where people just share their sketches and half hearted works like a fourth grader putting new art on the refrigerator waiting for praise from mommy. I can't stand that one bit. I want people to share art that is something they are really putting all their effort into. Not just sketches either, actual work pertaining to comics. Character design, thumbnails and roughs, and final pages of solid sequential art. 
I used to be in a group like this on Facebook. But the moderators passed the baton when their lives got busy at the time (no judgment on that, it happens to us all). But the new moderators in charge left the barn doors wide open  so to speak, and didn't have discretion with who joined, or watched the direction of the discussion of the group. Eventually the group fell into disarray like all other art groups, and was just a place for lazy artists to bomb the discussions with posts of their new sketches and not even trying to be a part of a group discussion, or even seek discussion of their work, only to show it off and ignore the group entirely..

If you know of a good group of selective members of indie comic artists who are actually looking to discuss tje medium of sequential art, and give and receive well thought out critiques, please let me know! I'd love to find that haven again. Ive been working on new comic work, and would love to have a group to share my work with for solid real critique and not just ass kissing.
