Some clients have been kind enough to say some really nice things about my service.
"For the Chicago Tribune campaign, I had a very specific look that I was hoping to achieve. Finding an illustrator that I thought could execute the campaign in the way I envisioned it was pretty difficult. Then I called Stan. He knew exactly what I was trying to achieve and he put me in touch with an illustrator that I would have never found on my own. The end result was spectacular. Tad Biernot did an amazing job and the process with Sharpshooter was an absolute pleasure."
Senior Art Director
"I was probably one of Stan's first clients back in 1981 and from the beginning he was more than the average studio rep. He's been a creative sounding board and and an extension of myself as an art director. We've won some awards together, and it's always been fun."
Paul Grissom, Grissom&Friends.
"What to say... love the passion, love the work, love the guy..."
" I have known and worked with Stan Olthuis for many years. Before that, I always admired his work, envied his highly productive creative relationships, and his stirling reputation as a man who gets the job done, right. I wanted to be in Stan's sphere of influence, and was thrilled when the opportunity arose. Stan is a man of integrity, a highly creative thinker, and a pleasure to work with. Plus, he knows his wine!"

"Our agency had the pleasure of working with Stan and Sharpshooter's artists on our award winning Evil Dead campaign. The experience was fantastic and the calibre of the artists' work was outstanding. We were impressed not only to the level of creativity and craft but also in the professionalism and collaboration."

"Calling Stan an artists' representative is like calling Donald Trump a realtor. After all, Stan's part artist, part producer and yes, part rep.
But the important part is that he manages to handle it all with affability, integrity and professionalism. I should know. I've known him for 30 years. Which is why when Brock University came to me this past spring, needing a multi-media campaign that involved a number of different shots and illustrations in a wide range of styles, done in a relatively short period of time, it took me just one call."
"The Sharpshooter Team was exceptional! Their creativity was inspiring, was on strategy, and was on budget.
Our app video got a lot of play via CrackBerry (#1 BlackBerry fan site), created buzz with our counterparts at RIM, and was a hit with consumers (we've had almost 20,000 hits).
Sharpshooter also did some exceptional work in designing our app logos.
On top of all this, Stan is an absolute pleasure and the Team he assembled was fantastic.
We're looking forward to our next project with Sharpshooter."
"Stan has been my agent for at least twenty years, Seems only yesterday I started to be repped by this wonderful and creative person. Stan is not only a dedicated agent but most and foremost a generous person, a creative artist and someone I have pleasure in calling my friend.
Working with him all these years has just been a dream."
