The iconic image of the ice cream sandwich evokes a comforting nostalgia, calling to mind childhood memories of playgrounds and endless summers. The simplicity of the illustration is Slaughter's homage to Ed Ruscha's floating book etching from the 60s, which plays with how one's eye perceives something that's actually not there. "The magic is that your eye perceives the ice cream. That's where the art is. Emotionally it's really about something else," Slaughter says. While living in a small summer cottage near Peconic Bay, the artist got the idea for this drawing while listening to the jingle of the ice cream truck drifting by each afternoon.
