I google searched "Tall 80s ice cream illustration" and this is what came up






I was trying to find this illustration we had in our house as a kid that was like 6 feet tall, or so it seemed, of different creative ice cream scoops. Like one had pencils in it and i think one had stitches like a baseball in it??? I REALLY liked it as a kid and used to just study it. Id like to see it again. Has anyone else seen this illustration????
I couldnt find it on google but these images came up that I thought were worth seeing...

I remember that!! It was a long, thin format poster, that had various gag 'flavors' of ice creams. Gaaah, can't remember that last time I saw it, but I"ll put my thinking cap n, n dig around..

I owned the 6 foot ice cream cone with various flavors too. It was part of the big airbrushed art craze of the 1980's. I too have been searching for it on Ebay, but have not been able to find it. I bet it can probably be found at conventions that deal with that sort of thing.

Hi David,

Damn you! I spent a good two hours searching for that image because I'm obsessive compulsive and like to think I'm good at finding things on the internet. But that poster has eluded me.

However... I was somewhat successful as I found a wicked lampoon of it. I'm sure this never hung in your childhood home.
