Uhm I think if you resize this to 85mmx55mm allot of text will become unreadably small. Also think if you want to go pro would not use gmail or deviant art and start using own domain. Also not really that special, try to do something more with the comic design like a speech bubble with the info inside that your character is saying in a comicly font. Also use some halftones to make it more comic.
yeah I know. having deviantart for the online portfolio site is embarassing. I have commissioned my buddies to do our official site but it's taking a long time to finish due to our busy schedules. i guess i'm gonna have to find alternatives.
I also realized the font size would be too small when resized but i went for it anyway. i guess that was bad. I haven't tried printing it out yet coz i ran out of ink! hahaha! i think i'd try to print out a resized version first, and then make the necessary adjustments. do you have any suggestions for the size? I'm not very happy about the font i used for my name either what font do you think should i use?
about the halftones though, that's something i haven't incorporated in any of my previous works. but that's an interesting idea. although i'm gonna have to practice using it first.
thanks so much chung dha! appreciate it, man!

In my opinion it's better to have an interesting and effective business card even if your card doesn't have the stereotypical look of most business cards.

Anyway, nice illustrative work but will be of no value if you can't read the text.

My 2 cents..
If you really want to emphasize on your comic creation skills, then my suggestions would be to go in for the entire card to be a frame of a comic strip with all the information in either speech bubbles of the comic text style.
The logo could be in the "BOOM..." style and your name could be the title of the strip and rest of the information in speech bubbles and the contact details in the backdrop etc....
Just thinking aloud...

have you checked out moo.com? They have minicards that are pretty reasonably priced. They're half the size of a standard business card, but I think they're pretty effective. You can place different images onthe back of the cards - a great way to show actual pieces.

I have made some changes in my card already. Actually, I just replaced the fonts and their sizes. There was no significant change in the layout and design, only the letters. I kinda like it to be this way.
I also made a new portfolio site t put in here, following chung_dha's suggestion. It's actually a blog which I modified to look like somewhat, a website. It's not practical for me to maintain a web host just yet, so I opted for a free blog domain. "i.ph" sounds a lot better than Deaviantart I think.

I already made the card you described. It was my last card before this one. I thought I'd try something new this time. It worked like a charm before though!
thanks for the tip! I check out the site. Lot's of great ideas there.
thanks again people!

I'm sorry, but what do you mean by this? are you saying you have a printing press and that i can go there to have my card printed?
