According to Andrew:
"This Ice Cream Person was around on the 60's folk scene in Whitby, North Yorkshire. A local skipper of a fishing trawler. Seen down the local pub drinking proper ale's of the nirth. A friendly chap, but keeps himself to himself."
Today me and fellow Ice Cream Advocate Felipe Ortiz, spent the afternoon explaining and illustrating the trademark characteristics of Ice Cream People for curious tourists. The sun was out in full-force in Cambridge, MA. Thus we did not encounter any frozen-folk, but I think our audience understood the criteria for identifying an Ice Cream Person.

So it turns out Ice Cream People are more in tune with contemporary fashion than me. Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream are two lines of luxury clothing established by Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes and Nigo, founder of BAPE. The items are produced in very limited quantities and are manufactured in Japan. Aside from the clothing line, Pharrell has also created his own skateboard team to gain street credibility. The team is called “Team Ice Cream”.

Shawn O'Keefe displays his versatile drawing abilities with these antemortem and postmortem versions of an Ice Cream Person.
(note: the dead one says fecal face because it was featured on an art website called fecalface.com, not because that is its flavor.)
