We’ve flipped our calendars to April and that means it’s time to introduce you to @hpfangs, our April artist of the month! HP Fangs is a Wilmington based doodlist, and middle school art teacher at GLOW academy. His work can be seen at Memory Lane Comics, Bryant Gallery, Children’s Books, and all over the streets of Wilmington (in chalk)! Most recently, he is the art director of the Black L!ves Do Matter installation downtown. Influenced heavily by 80’s and 90’s pop culture his style includes a lot of bold lines, bright colors and cartoon imagery. He considers it fun art, not fine art.
As with all of our artists this year, HP was paid for his art and we made a donation in his honor to @dreams_of_wilmington, his charity of choice. These designs are available now online and at all shops. Thanks so much HP Fangs for collaborating with us!
Sooo… How exactly does this work?
Hey, we’re glad you asked! Shipping ice cream is a little more complicated than shipping an ice cream hat, but no worries. We’ve got this!
First, we only ship our ice cream out on Tuesdays. So when you place your order make a mental note that your pints will be leaving our shop the following Tuesday. We pack your pints into a reusable foam cooler and pack in enough dry ice to keep everything fully frozen for the journey. Once you (or a friend, family member, coworker, perfect stranger) receive the ice cream you’ll want to get it into your freezer to warm up. Nope, not a typo. The dry ice will freezer your ice cream to such a low temperature that your freezer will actually help things get back up to a scoopable temperature. And as for the dry ice? Don’t touch it with your bare hands! Dry ice is so incredibly cold that it can burn you. Just leave the bag of dry ice in a safe location (free from pets or small hands) and the dry ice will sublimate (turn directly into a gas.) See, we told you there was nothing to it.
