Hi there, recently was laid off from a job I had at a gas station and I made it my goal to support myself completely with art. You can see my portfolio here for some reference http://dylart.com/
Basically I'm gathering emails of art directors and sending them my portfolio. Looking around on the work related forums on DA and CA, and sending people looking to work with artists my portfolio. This will very much be spam but I'm also gathering emails of all sorts of different family owned business in my city and sending them my portfolio.
Other then just making sure I'm putting in the hours everyday to improve my skills on top of what ever work I get... is there anything else you could suggest?
I'm not completely screwed if I fail, I have family to go back too but I'm confident I wont.
Thanks CA =)
