Steep Hill in Lincoln was named Britain’s Best Place by the Academy of Urbanism in 2011. The steep street was originally built by the Romans to connect the growing parts of Lincoln, but Steep Hill has come a long way since then. Today, it is a popular bustling tourist street, lined with independent shops, tea rooms and pubs. The entrance to Lincoln Cathedral lies at the top of the hill and can be seen as you ascend the steep climb.
Steve Crisp was educated around the late seventies at St. Martins School of Art, London and at a time when many young students were graduating from college with new styles and ideas. He is a fine example of someone who has gone on from that period to become a well-established, internationally known, award winning illustrator. He has a large and diverse catalogue of work especially from the eighties and nineties, many of which have become collector’s pieces. Steve has managed to adapt well to the changing needs of illustration especially with the introduction of digital techniques ten years or so ago.
