Limited edition skateboard deck from an edition of 125. The words "THE WORLD IS NOT CHANGING IF YOU DON'T SHOULDER THE RESPONSIBILITY" printed prominently with his ceramic crabs in the background.

This powerful phrase is a call to arms for people to realize that change only comes from action, and that anyone that wants change needs to help take responsibility in making it happen.
