Default Critique Freelance Business Card

Hi, everyone. Attached is a simple, Constructivist-inspired business card I'm thinking of using for my freelance design/art. I have plans for a more thematic, illustrated card, but I might also have a handful of this version as a more conservative alternative. And yes, that's my real name. I think the first post I made on here was many years back, in which I discussed job-related problems and wanted anonymity, or maybe I just thought the alter ego was amusing.

Anyhow, feedback would be appreciated.

I sort of like that the font is a san serif but, I don't really care for the blocked letters (A, D, R, O, etc.) but I'm not sure why I don't care for it. Perhaps it's because of the images the letters overlay. I like the fact that your name ('-}}) is in a large point size as that draws the eye and mitigates the fact that the name in on a slant.

The design has a lot of energy and I don't find it "conservative"...'-}}

Thanks, Terrie. Maybe I'll switch to the main variation of that font that doesn't fill in all the bowls.
