While wandering through a consignment shop last weekend, I stumbled upon this glorious colorful paining of Zebras that immediately made me think of Yipes the Fruit Strip Gum mascot. It is perhaps a tender seem of a young gum zebra (Yipes) and his equally colorful mother wandering through the Technicolor veldt of some magical candy-coated island.
I am not sure who the artist was or if they intended it to resemble Yipes, but they did a great job and it should be hanging in the corporate headquarters of the Ferrara Candy Company.
