Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved those crazy, kitschy ice machines seen outside of gas stations in the summer time, hawking big bags of ice with igloos or polar bear illustrations on the front. The machines I remember also had giant block letters spelling I C E with piled-up snow caps on each one.
So lately I’ve been thinking, why not make my own version of the classic ice machine art? Maybe I’ve been inspired by all this recent Chicago winter weather. Or maybe I just think it would be cool to see a penguin delivering a block of ice the old fashioned way. Whatever the reason, I hope you enjoy this icy treat.
