Two years ago today, the first Big Gay Ice Cream Shop opened in the East Village! Here’s a pic of the opening day staff.
Also here’s a video of the opening ceremony, featuring contrabassoons, Ari Kiki, and Tony Bourdain. (And a tiny glimpse of me at the end as I walk back into the store to get to work!)
It’s been a wild ride!

oh hey here’s a little Big Gay Ice Cream shirt that you can wear as you cavort in your tiny pretend animal towns and hunt for beetles and such

my lifelong dream is to have Julian the unicorn move into my town, but it has yet to happen :/

If you ever visit New York City, your first stop —after Puck or Greene, take your pick— should be Big Gay Ice Cream.

Douglas Quint and Bryan Petroff started the frozen treat enterprise in 2009 as an ice cream truck perched on Manhattan street corners. The summertime…

hmm the hands in this sure do look familiar…

I just did this one today! I’m curious to see how many people end up getting the joke.
I took this photo outside in the superbright sunlight to reveal the secret easter egg (drawn in black chalk ink)

this one was another fave of mine and it’s all me! the phrase made its way to a few other signs after this.
(this works on two levels: weight concerns and lactose intolerance.)

this may come as a shock to some of you but sometimes I draw things that aren’t unicorns

This one is one of my faves, and while it’s still a reference of sorts it’s not “hey it’s a nerd thing!” I like to balance it out sometimes.

Dae-neigh-rys Stormicorn. Whipped this up after the rain totally hosed my first Game of Cones design and I didn’t have the heart to re-draw it.

and this was done in June in conjunction with Foursquare’s Game of Cones competition (where we kicked SO MUCH ASS even though everyone else involved also made really good efforts)

the lettering on this was done by my coworker Jenna because she does some sweet freakin’ lettering

yoooooo I do a lot of assorted little art things for my job at Big Gay Ice Cream and I decided to make a specific tumblr for posting them.
this seemed like the appropriate thing to post first. I drew this in March.
