Artist and Author Joe Oesterle

Joe Oesterle is an award winning writer of the book Weird Hollywood and illustrator, but what he often fails to mention is that many of those awards were won on a New Jersey boardwalk, shooting a water pistol into the mouth of a plastic clown in an effort to be the first to pop the balloon.

Joe has been the Art Director and Senior Editor of the National Lampoon, and his work has appeared in television, radio, books (including Weird California), magazines, and web sites.

Joe also has a number of years of experience in both the apparel industry and the advertising world as an Art Director. He has remained relatively unharmed by the experiences.

He also wrote, directed, and performed in an animated short that is on display at the Smithsonian Institution. He is not much of a business man, so you could probably cheat him out of some brilliant ideas. (Of which he has plenty.)

About the group...

Learn the secrets to using part-time collaboration to achieve full-time results with the spin off meetup of the successful San Diego Comic Con and WonderCon panel with the same name!

No matter which industry (comics, illustration, movies, art, graphic and web design, animation, costuming / cosplay, podcasting and many other creative industries), breaking into today's media is a full-time job, even if you have only part-time hours to accomplish it. To accomplish that goal you have to find or form then work with a team of people while avoiding mortal casualties. Each month we cover how to successfully juggle time between their creative and business sides and discuss the process, pitfalls, and potential of part-time collaboration from their experiences in illustration, writing, design and animation and other fields from a variety of levels of administration and sizes of organizations.

Whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional, if you struggle with deadlines, need help finding collaborators, want to know how to effectively work with a team or simply want to know how to get your foot in the door, this monthly meetup is not to be missed!

Hosted by the Microsoft Store at South Coast Plaza in Orange County.
