Recently I entered a illustration competition run by Don't Panic where each entry is auctioned off and all proceeds going to The Macmillan Cancer charity..... Amazingly my Hand pulled Screen Print was picked as the winner in the competition, judged by Chris Ratcliffe and Hannah Havana from Garudio studiage.
Being picked as the winner I had my design printed onto all the goodie bags....
There was also lots of amazing talented fashion designers and illustrators and a beautiful Installation room by Pam Hogg

What a difference a few years makes....Overkill use to sell spray paint, markers and a few select limited edition trainners. But fast forward a few years and the stores expanded stocking all the big street brands,clothing and sneakers and also exhibiting art work from some of street arts heavyweights including Mode 2, Fafi to name a few.......Still most definately worth passing through...
Been to Berlin many a times and always love discovering little frith stores and independent boutiques....On my recent trip I discovered this gem of a shop "Superstore" full of many vintage delights, lots of carefully sourced fashion pieces and accessories, so no need to rummage through the shit......Beautiful graphic prints and colourful pieces, the store itself also has amazing bold murals through out the basement store (painted by the owner david) with 80s furnishing fixtures .....a must for any vintage lover and street style fashionista....And the owner David is one of the friendliest that you'll meet...Happy Shopping :)
Wow...Just looking through all of my pics from Berlin and got way way to snap happy, all of ehich are of high quality so the rest will go up on flickr.....Decided to catergorize my trip so this post is basically out and about around this amazing city.
