Meet Doug Miller / Atmospheric Architectural Illustrator

We are delighted to welcome Doug Miller, architectural assistant and illustrator to Debut Art. Graduating in 2015 from the Bartlett School of Architecture, London, he draws on architecture and scale in his illustration. His drawings explore many small narratives and experiment with colourful and highly detailed compositions of surreal and fantastical architecture. His main inspiration comes from the comic books of Franco-Belgian sci-fi alongside the grit and atmosphere of vintage science fiction concept art. He enjoys working on the details within larger pieces, drawing tiny details and stories to capture the imagination of the viewer and draw them into the artwork.Previous clients include:The Building CentrePitchforkIt's Nice ThatWired UKThe Royal AcademyBartlett School of Architecture ECO BuildAwards:SOM Foundation Fellowship 2015​RIBA Bronze Medal High CommendationRIBA Donaldson Medal WinnerBartlett School of Architecture MedalBartlett Faculty of the Built Environment MedalVictor Kite...
