Walter Ostlie: Key Ingredient for Success in This Comic Industry – Stic….
Sometimes you have to take a double take (two, Three, or even four years in a row) when trolling artist alley in order to recognize amazing work done by dedicated artist and writers. Venues like Mega Con affords purveyors like myself this unique opportunity; as it sets the stage for artist and writers that have the wherewithal to produce, showcase, to achieve praise and in some cases endure the possible rejection of their work year after year. This drive is a great determinant as to whether artist and writers have a necessary ingredient to achieve in the comic industry – “stick to-itness” (I know it’s not a word, but it is becoming a very common phrase). Thus Far, Walter has given me the simplest and perhaps the best example as to how to go about achieving this “Stick to-itness” in our daily creative lives.
What do Walter Ostlie and Thomas Edison have in common? They were not afraid to suck at their job if it meant they got better with every successive attempt. This kind of thinking and drive is what all artist and writers need in order to be successful.
I wish this amazing talent a lot of success
