Stay Melty (Deluxe Edition)
The Deluxe Edition of the book features a cover that I’ve meticulously painted by hand. Each one features an iconic ice cream head and is signed on the back. Also, each book has a thick durable protective plastic cover. Presented in an elegant black fabric slip-case with metallic silver foil stamp.
I took nearly all the photos (over 600 total) and layed it out myself. It’s got tons of behind the scenes photos; all aspects of my creative output are included. I’m super happy that the iconic Gingko Press published it and that art critic extraordinaire Carlo McCormick wrote the text for it.
When I moved from LA to NYC about 3 years ago, I didn’t know how it was going to work out. Sure, I had visited NYC a bunch of times, but I had no idea how I would fare. As soon as I moved here, my life changed; a whole new world of opportunities and possibilities opened up. Over the last three years, I’ve travelled the world, worked on a little animation for Disney, painted a ton of walls, set up my painting studio in the LES, released my first self-produced vinyl toy, and worked on a million other projects. My new book, Stay Melty, is the culmination of the last few years.
224 pages, 6.75 x 8.75”, hardcover.
