Hi Guys,
First time in several moths, i'm running low on jobs on graphic design on boardgames, I usually got several jobs trough this forum, but it seems the river went dry

I don't want to go back to web design or stuff like that, so i appreciate your input.

Does anyone have tips to share on places to find jobs?
If anyone is curious about my skills, you can check my portfolio at www.okartstudio.com

Any advice is great help!

It never hurts to attend game conventions. I've gotten numerous jobs from meeting face to face with various publishers. Good luck, I know that the cycle of feast or famine is very real as a full time freelancer.

Being from Argentina keeps it impossibe, so i'm sadly far from this option.
The cicle is real... but I just never got to the feast yet, hahaha.

Agree with Peter that face to face meetings at conventions is really the best way to go. I feel the pain of distance that you do, being based in Australia, but I made the investment of travelling to Essen last year and it was well worth it. Not always possible, I understand, but it's a great way to make connections.

In the US as a freelancer, you can also write off a convention (price of admission, plane tickets/transportation, hotel stay, food, business cards, etc.) as business expenses, which should lower your taxes as a business. It might not net neutral, but it's the cost of doing business.

I was thinking on going last year, to show my game Oni and make some connections, but was a father this october, so was impossible.

I'm preparing for next year, can you tell me more about your experience? Would be totally helpful to prepare myself.
