Lord Dunsby Appreciation Thread
« on: January 16, 2020, 10:29:39 PM »
Apologies if posted elsewhere...

As Dave has noted on Twitter, illustrator, wit, and Mod to the teeth Steve Millington has died.

Best known as Lord Dunsby in these parts, he was a huge part of what made the forum tick for a long, long time.

Very sad news.

Horrible news, a super talented artist, and I'm sure he was a great person too.
I'm so sorry for his family and friends... RIP.

Blimey, that is a shock! Only know him through his work, and bought a book including his illustrations, but that is very sad news.

RIP Lord Dunsby. A talented artist and one of the funniest on the old Modculture site. My thoughts are with his family and friends.

Wow, what a sad surprise. His illustrations show a true talent, got one of them framed at my study and it looks superb. It just don't seem fair guys that are still kind of young pass away before their time. Sorry for their family, RIP

Picked up on this today, tragic news and may he rest in peace.

My thoughts are with his family.

Used to make me smile on the old forum with his posts, I only met him (briefly) once at an event in Birmingham & seemed a nice bloke.

Just logged back on here after quite a break.  As expected, Steve's passing is posted.
First met Steve through this Forum some years ago & continued on FB. Called in to see him at home on a driving holiday through the UK a few years ago ( I am in Adelaide, South Australia) .
Such a warm, articulate & talented friend who will be missed by so many.

Few suggestions on Facebook about a potential exhibition of his work - would love to see it, if a crowdfunder is set up, hopefully Dave can post in here!
