Chip Snaddon was commissioned by Sheryl Ozinsky for the City of Cape Town’s Energy and Climate Change Branch to produce a poster which would communicate the vision of a dynamic, environmentally sustainable, future Cape Town. Chip, who has worked as an illustrator, cartoonist and storyboard artist for more than twenty years. He was born in Estcourt (KZN) in 1964 and went to Hilton College where he matriculated in 1982. But it would be in Cape Town where he’d cut his teeth as an editorial cartoonist with the UDF paper ‘South’ in the late 1980’s. A highly talented artist, Chip divides his drawing time between cartooning and illustrating books and storyboards for the advertising industry. His creative employment of perspective and his trademark parallel lined hatching are legendary. In 1998 he joined ‘The Argus’ as their resident cartoonist and – save a year’s break during 2005/6 – has been with them ever since. Chip lives in the house he built in Kommetjie, Cape Town, is an avid surfer, and dreams of living a sustainable lifestyle off the grid. We love his work!
