There are places around the world that look like ice cream–– Artist’s Palette in Death Valley or Rainbow Mountain in Peru to name a couple–– but what could be better than real ice cream? This would be an ultimate hiking dream.
Huckleberry River - This flavor felt calm and reflective to me. With the gorgeous color of the huckleberry jam, I had no choice but to create a river for the figure to canoe down! I imagine them paddling through this peaceful scene on a summer morning.
S’More Bonfire - I wanted to create the fun energy of friends around a bonfire. I used hazelnut paste and praline as the ground, and put the figures under a starry night. I imagine them making salted hazelnut praline s’mores while their friends set up camp.
Buttermilk Pancake Hills - Nothing like a morning at camp. Learning about this flavor, I imagined the feeling of waking up to the smell of coffee, and bacon on the cast iron. Here the figure is enjoying a late morning with the dog, after breakfast.
