Oost is inspired by the Clear Line style of Henk Kuijpers, which can be seen in his adventure strip 'Max Miller', which first appeared in Eppo in 2009. After a short story and a longer story called 'Moordkunsten', Oost started working with Frank Jonker for new scripts.

In 2020 he joined 75 Dutch & Flemish comic artists to make a graphic contribution to the free collective comic book ‘Striphelden versus Corona’ (Oogachtend, Uitgeverij L, 2020). The book is intended to support comics stores who had to close their doors for two months during the lockdown at the height of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
