I sold this original watercolor this weekend! I painted this one from a small statue that I bought on my honeymoon to Athens, Greece.

A Kabillion Ways to Find Freelance Graphic Design Clients

A Kabillion Ways to Find Freelance Graphic Design Clients

I am going to officially launch my graphic design business in the next few months. (My husband and I are buying a house right now, so that’s taking priority over my time.) However, I will soon have an abundance of free time to work on my website and business and I needed a place to start. So I went to my long-time friend, Google, and asked for some help. I found this awesome website that has a list of more than enough ways to find clients. If I were to do half of these things, I would have more work than I’d know what to do with. So if you are just starting out like me or if you are in a rut and don’t know where to go from here, check out this list! 

Happy Designing!!!

Oh clients… they say the silliest things.

Art buffs, can you guess who this is?

Art buffs, can you guess who this is? Here’s your only clue:

These were all taken at the Art Institute of Chicago.

1. Here’s the first, it’s an easy one!

2. Your second painting is a tad more challenging, unless you know who painted in a thick, impasto style with bright colors?

3. For this one, if you take a step back, maybe it will come together into a familiar picture.

4. Here’s another easy one so you can feel smart. ;P

5. (+1 Extra Credit) For those of you who need a challenge!

What’s your score? You can get a 1 – 4.

0: Dude, you need to learn a little more about the world.

1-2: Good job, you probably took some classes in college and don’t look too stupid wandering around in the art museums.

3-4: Excellent! You can be my friend.

5: You got the bonus point? What? I wish that I was as cool as you.

Thanks again for playing! Have a fun, fun day and learn something!
