I picked one up from some random shop a year or so ago. I wanna say it was somewhere around $150. and was for a charity.
Antihype!

Seriously though, I think $225 is a more than fair. $150 was a steal. Just my opinion, of course.

So true. When I happened across the Protect the Sacred I recall thinking it was underpriced.

Embrace Justice. A simple message for a complex problem. Thanks to one of my favorite restaurants in Silver Lake, The Black Cat, for the wall space and shared philosophy. The Black Cat is a historic LGBTQ+ bar in Los Angeles, where it was the site of one of the first demonstrations in the U.S. protesting police harassment within the LGBTQ+ community. I’m proud to get my art up on their wall, especially during #PrideMonth. Thanks to Rob Zagula, Luka Densmore, and Jason Filipow for the help with facilitation and installation!

As I mentioned last week, I’ll be releasing this “Style Endures” letterpress print to #helpsavejuice! I’m releasing this Thursday, June 18th on my site, store.obeygiant.com, and a portion of proceeds goes to Juice Magazine to help keep them in print. There will be four colorways available: black, magenta, cyan and yellow.

Running a print mag is always a tough business for love, not money, but is especially challenging during a pandemic. Juice is in financial distress, and I want to help and pay my proper respects to style in skateboarding, but also paying my respects to authentic voices in skateboard culture who chronicle the past and the future. Juice has been a voice for core skateboarding, music, and art for 25 years. Let’s help support to keep them in print! Thanks for caring!

Had to search for the reference photo for better context. Here it is for anyone curious: https://payload.cargocollective.com/1/3 ... 0_1250.jpg

This one's not for me. At all.

Such a weird perspective, shadowing, etc in that photograph, that it doesn't transfer into Sheps style very well.
