The San Francisco-based artist recently did a portrait of Wilder as Willy Wonka completely out of candy, including jelly beans, Tic-Tacs, Red Hots and gumballs.
Sorry, no everlasting gobstoppers.
Mecier actually did the portrait weeks before Wilder’s death, only to have it get new attention in the last week, according to the A.V. Club.
A photo of the portrait is going viral, but the real thing is on display at Giddy Candy, a candy store in San Francisco.
