So apparently July 19th is National Ice Cream Day – possibly one of the most glorious holidays known to mankind.
Not only does chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream taste great, but it also makes for a fabulous work of art. In all seriousness, ice cream has been the source of inspiration for countless artists, most notably Warhol’s no-big-deal-sketch-that-is-now-probably-worth-millions “Ice Cream Cone”. Since then, artists have gotten much more creative when recreating their favorite frozen food, and I don’t mean simply adding a waffle cone and sprinkles with a cherry on top!
Ice Cream Cone by Peter Anton aka “The Cadillac Cone” (because it’s seriously the size of a car)
Winter X Summer by Stephen McMennam aka “A Big Fat Scoop of Sporty Spice”
Pentax Calendar by Guy Bourdin aka “Sorbet: Ice Cream’s Slutty Sister”
Trickle Down by Lori Larusso aka “Will Someone Please Hand Me a Clorox Wipe, STAT”
Melting Point by Erik Johansson aka “RESPECT”
Napoleon by Julia DeVille aka “The Non-Vegan, Non-Vegetarian Ice Cream”
Delicious Mess by Desire Obtain Cherish aka “I Would Definitely Cry Over Spilled Ice Cream”
Dropped Cone by Claes Oldenburg aka “Of All Places, You Just Had to Put My Cone THERE?”
Cookie and Cream Heels by Shoe Bakery aka “When Guiseppe Zanotti Eats Way Too Much Ice Cream”
Ice Cream by Heiner Meyer aka “Do Not Get In That Creepy Man-Child’s ‘Ice Cream Truck'”
And last but not least, the greatest ode to lactose desserts ever created:
Shoutout to Art Report’s favorite ice cream joint in New York City, Mikey Likes It Ice Cream. They have the coolest, yummiest flavor flavs ranging from Killer Bee (banana with honey and chocolate covered peanuts) to a generous scoop of Ice Ice Baby (vanilla) in between two warm, sugary donuts. Stop by the Lower East Side for a sugary good time.
