It was just crushed ice piled on top of a tiny bit of ice cream, and I wanted to emphasize this mound through perspective. This story written by Matthew Baker was one of 29 original short stories in this issue. It was amazing to be part of a project with such a diverse group of illustrators.

My role in this project was conceptualizing and digitally illustrating the bowl of ice ice cream.
