    Events: Joey Badass + WAT-AAH! | Surprise Show | NYC

    Last night, Brooklyn rapper Joey Badass surprised fans in Soho for the WAT-AAH! “Taking Back the Streets” installment at the #WATAAHWALL on Lafayette and Prince by Artist Kenny Scharf.  

    WAT-AAH!’s “Taking Back the Streets” was launched on February 20 at NYC’s New Museum, drawing a special visit from PHA’s honorary chair First Lady Michelle Obama. The exhibit featured original pieces of artwork inspired by Drink Up’s water drop logo and specially designed WAT-AAH! bottles from artists such as Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf, Swoon, Maya Hayuk, Trey Speegle, Metro Zu, Lichiban, Tony Concep and more.

    The #WATAAHWALL series is a continuation of WAT-AAH!’s Taking Back the Streets initiative which brings the campaign artwork to the streets. Furthering WAT-AAH!’s commitment to Drink Up, these walls seek to create more exposure and awareness for Drink Up using visual arts in an innovative way to remind kids and teens that choosing to drink water is one of the best and easiest decisions we can make each and every day.

    The “Taking Back The Streets” #WATAAHWALL series will continue to tour nationwide.  For more info go to, drinkwataah.com

    Observer: Adi Goodrich | Art Director

    Adi Goodrich is a Los Angeles based Set Designer and Art Director. Goodrich work continues to liberally push past cliché design motifs. She has worked with the likes of Wieden + Kennedy, Target, Apple, Adult Swim, Pizza Hut and Toyota just to drop a few names. In her latest project she worked with Native Shoes on their Spring 2014 campaign. She has made her passion for design her life’s work. Adi spoke to AMMO about who inspires her, how she defines beauty and why she started designing.

    AMMO: What is your AMMO?

    ADI GOODRICH: My AMMO is time. There is such a fleeting feeling in all of this. Like, “When am I not going to be cool anymore?” That’s a real thought; I’m going to be old and younger kids will be cooler than me, I often think about that. Time also affects the way I work: prepping for the future to be able to sustain a comfortable future life, making sure I’m being responsible and creative at the same time. Time makes me hustle. Basically, I want to make as much as possible in the best possible way for as long as I can. I was hit by a van when I was young, leaving me with a permanent back injury. Everyday my back is in pain, one of these days I think it will get in the way, in the meantime I’ll make a bunch of cool shit until I’m not cool or until my back gives up.

    image

    If only our walk of shame looked as funny and adventure packed as this.  We’d probably live scandalously reckless more often.  Check out the trailer for the new film, "Walk of Shame" starring Elizabeth Banks and James Marsden that follows one girl from an innocent girls night out to a fuck story of police chases and prostitute run-ins all in a little yellow dress.
