A.K.A Colin McAllister, 1984 -

Snublic began in the lazy summer of 2006, when at the end of a Computer Animation Degree one Colin David McAllister embarked on a series of drawings. Colin has been illustrating Colchester in black and white ink for many years (worked from photographs he has taken) and also draws 'cartoons' about social issues of the day. Colin studied a diploma in Graphic Design and Digital Media at the Colchester Institute and went on to study Computer Animation at Portsmouth University. He works Monday to Friday at the Level Best Art Cafe on Culvert St East, a not for profit venture and subsidiary of the Dacontrust which helps adults with a learning difficulty in a work skills environment.

Snublic exhibits pretty frequently & has been known to take commissions. He lives and works in Colchester, England and is affiliated with CO3 Studios, ENAS & Made in Colchester.
