Yes, after many many months working and waiting, the Updated and Expanded version of Stay Melty is finally available!
"The first version of the book was published in 2015 by Gingko Press. The book is packed full with over 600 photos of murals, paintings, toys and everything in between. Now over 6 years later, I’ve full updated the book. I’d say it's mostly NEW. Of the existing pages, I consolidated and edited them to make room for 6 more years of paintings, murals and editions. We also added around 50 pages to the total page count. So it’s an even denser and larger overview of all of my various artistic endeavors, and still includes the awesome essay by the legendary Carolo McCormick. This new version also has more captions than before, and even comes with a small sheet of stickers! So whether or not you have the original version, this is one you’ll want to have!"

Today he also works on paintings, collectible toys and design projects. Buff Monster’s distinctive style – influenced by black metal music, ice cream and Japanese culture – is dominated by different shades of pink that he associates with confidence and individuality.
