Advertising The Gathering : Day 4 New Business

Day 04 -
It's the Advertising The Gathering official card release. The ultimate of all "yes-men", the purveyors of fine adult entrainment, and the source of the old saying "you would sell your own mother", I present the fourth card in the series, the New Business card. While it may be very difficult to pay your rent without this role it certainly does not change the stigma attached to it.

Card TitleNew Business

Card Quote: "I know this great steak house / strip club"

Card DetailsWhen New Business card comes into play card caster doesn't really gain anything, if anything they actually lose a little bit of respect from their opponent. Every time card is tapped opponent must buy card caster a round of drinks and a lap dance.

- About the project -
I had this fun idea to do an illustration project focusing on different roles in advertising to which I would add cheeky bios but after starting the project I became really frustrated with my lack of illustration skills. So I brainstormed some better vehicles for the concept. What better vehicle then Magic the Gathering! Have no idea what that is? Half of me doesn't blame you and to be honest, the other half that does, could probably be talked into not blaming you either. So if you need a down and dirty overview check out what wiki has to say. I hope you enjoy it, I'm going to try and post one card every week day for as long as I can keep coming up with fun roles and copy to go with them.
