For the closing night of the art show I participated in, I created a chocolate version of one of my favorite Box Tops albums, Dimensions. Both singer Alex Chilton and Andy Hummel, the bassist for Big Star, passed away this year and I thought a tribute was in order. I normally dye my chocolate with powdered food coloring, which provides a lot of freedom when mixing and blending colors. Recently though, I picked up some oil-based chocolate coloring and decided to try it for this piece. The colors came out way more intense than I would have liked for this specific project, but it’s good to know I have options!
Stay tuned for Bukowski Fest at Skylight Books on August 14th. In addition to readings, screenings and of course, alcohol, I will be serving a Bukowski cake!
