Beezer Ice Cream



We have this ice cream truck guy in Jersey called Weaser. He has a cheap knock-off of the Greatful Dead Weaser guy from the Europe 72 live album, smashing his raindow colored ice cream cone on his head. I don't usually like rip-off art, especially bad rip-off art. But for some reason, I have always liked this one. I guess I'm just easy when it comes to ice cream. Anyway, here's my spin of a cheap knock-off of Weaser.
I included the original Weaser at the top. I would take a picture of the ice cream truck version but I havn't seen it since I moved to South Jersey 7 years ago.

I love this illo. Makes me think of when I was a kid in NYC and the ice cream truck would come by our house in Queens. Powerful work my friend.

Yeah, the ice cream truck is a great memory for me too. I used to get this thing called a WonderBar. It was strawberry and bannana swirl with a dipped hard shell chocolate coating on a stick. My brain is glazing over just thinking about it.

Very nice! I was inspired by your scratchboard style, so I did some research, created my own board, but have yet to try it. I must!
