Grimm and Ribbs Business Card by kohashu Grimm and Ribbs Business Card by kohashu
Another Business. Same assignment as HITMAN card seen here [link] . This was second occupation, a Morturary & BBQ. Oddly enough, I got the idea from when my grandmother pasted. There was a funeral home in her town by the name of "Lewis & Ribbs" and and at first thought "Ribs? Is that a BBQ place? This is no time to be thinking about food!", but I found out what it was later that day. So that's where the idea came from, kinda sad actually; my class got a kick out of it though. On a bizarre note, after I made the card, I heard on the news that one funeral home in the Bay Area was going to start selling pastries to clients.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Bay Area, Colma is like the cemetery capital of California. Feeling quite unreal when you drive through, it's literally a city of the dead with funeral homes and cemeteries everywhere you look.

Specs: Used Illustrator CS4 for this one and designed it to look like a coffin. I tried to make the G&R appear as a tombstone with the info underneath. The same photo trick was used for the product shot as in the HITMAN card.

Grimm and Ribbs. come for the funeral, stay for their fall-off-the-bone beef ribs.

good point, you never know when someone accidentally gives you the wrong meat.

Great concept! :love:

I saw the people on there and was like :stare: :sprint: :nuu:
But I guess in a way they DO "serve" people, or at least they serve people chicken, pig, and beef ^^

Thanks! It was kind of a last minute gag. But if you've ever been to Colma, the joke may or may not be true. :wormnomnom: It's a town where the dead seem to outnumber the living and it gets you thinking about crazy stuff. :lol:
