The Story of…Polar Bear Eating Ice Cream

In the post, The Story of…Bears Flying Planes, I wrote about how I was in a design/creative rut and decided to get out of it by doing designs based on the socks I wore in February 2013.  Well, what I’m referring to as The Sock Challenge apparently worked and I’ve had ideas flying around my head like crazy!

Unfortunately that means I haven’t been updating about The Sock Challenge as much as I would have liked to. However, I’ve finally gotten around to doing a design based on the socks I wore on February 2, 2013! Here’s a picture of the socks I wore:

I know, white socks. Not overly exciting. (I was traveling at the time and when I travel, I usually bring white or black socks to keep things simple.  This way, no matter what I wear, I know I’ll have a pair of socks that goes with it without having to bring a lot of extra things.)

However, I did come up with what I think is a cute design:


  How did I come up with this design?  Well, I use to be a computer teacher and taught computer graphics.  When giving the students a graphics assignment, I use to say and don’t show me a blank screen and tell me it’s a polar bear eating vanilla ice cream during a snow storm!
 So I wondered, what would a polar bear eating vanilla ice cream look like?


Did You Know?
  • Students actually did laugh when I said the polar bear line 🙂
  • Sometimes I would substitute polar bear eating vanilla ice cream with Beatles White Album
  • I make my own ice cream.
  • My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip
  • Polar Bear Eating Ice Cream is available at Valerie’s Gallery on Zazzle, Red Bubble, Skreened and Imagekind
