Default How to summarize skills on business card

I was laid off once again in late January, this time from my role as reporter/photographer at a community newspaper. I want to make a business card for both networking as well as freelance opportunities. In addition to design, photography and illustration, the 1.5 years at the newspaper provided journalism/editorial experience (I even won two 3rd- and a 2nd-place state award).

I think it might work well to broadly describe myself as specializing in "visual & editorial communications" for any potential jobs or networking events, with a simple but creative business card design. Then a fun, illustration-heavy card can be made for my visual arts-based freelance work, describing me as a "graphic artist."

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated, as well as suggestions on how best to network during this tough time. Fortunately I'be doubled my LinkedIn connections thanks to all the interviews I did for the paper, but I'm hesitate to reach out to a lot of them to inquire about potential jobs. I also just have a Behance.net account for my visual art/design work and no online portfolio for my articles
