Ooooooooh noooooo! Vanilla icecream! It's a travesty! It HAS to be chocolate icecream. Preferably chocolate with bits of chocolate.

Very cool collage. Simple. Clean. Evocative.

My sister and I always used to have this fight when we were kids...if it comes down to a choice, I'm a vanilla girl, she's a chocolate girl!

Why have to decide between the two at all? Both are lovely. But if I was held down and forced to picked, I'd go with vanilla!

Your collage has a very clean feeling to it. I like that. The patterning works beautifully to illustrate the swirls in ice cream. They are structured and yet at the same time, very delicate.

I love the sumptuous layers of vanilla and chocolate. You've really captured the essence of soft, rich ice cream, piled high and starting to soften on a hot summer's day.

I like chocolate too, but it has to be in the form of chocalate sprinkles wrapped around the vanilla swirl cone. It's a beautiful collage.

I'm told real chocolate lovers only use vanilla ice cream and then cover it in chocolate??? Is it true?
Great illo.
