Millership grew up in the industrial landscape of northern England and is determined to preserve its iconic buildings through artistic record. 'The Central Library' takes the subject of Manchester's iconic classical monument. Built in 1930, the building is inspired by the classical buildings of Rome and is loosley derived from the Pantheon in Rome. The product of expert draftsmanship, this illustration depicts the Library bathed in a warm afternoon sun beaming across the square.

Stephen Millership

I grew up in an industrial part of England within walking distance of beautiful countryside, moving to Manchester to study Graphic Design in my teens. Over the years I have worked in graphic design and computer games and became a founding member of a successful computer games company in Cheshire. More recently I have returned to illustration.

My prints have been exhibited in Museums, Hotels and exhibitions around the country. The style of my art draws on the interest I have for the classic travel posters of the 1930’s and the optimism for the future portrayed in many of these vintage works. Subjects I have illustrated stretch from Tudor halls and rolling countryside to the conzrete Brutalism of the 1970’s. I think this wide range is a reflection of growing up with heavy industry and being surrounded by rural Derbyshire. I aim to make the unattractive, attractive, to give a greater appreciation of loved and some not so loved subjects.

Research is the key for me, and I see the illustration process as a journey to a greater understanding of my subject. If I come away from a finished commission knowing more than I did before I started, then I am happy.
