Artist Statement & Biography
My name is Craig Snodgrass. I’ve created a whole world of inspirational characters influenced heavily by my nostalgia for retro science fiction films, comics and toys.

I primarily paint and illustrate images of whimsical robots. The robots I create (Snodbots) possess an uncanny sense of humanity, frailty and tenderness. This sense of humanity allows people to connect to the robot and create their own narrative based on the image.

Concord University
What I Love Doing
Making. Making art. Making dinner. Making my daughter laugh. Learning how to do all those things better or in a new way.
What I Find Beautiful
The neon lights of Shanghai. An abandoned factory. The rust on an old tractor. My wife's eyes. The way my daughter looks at something she’s never seen before. The way the light filters through my windshield of my car on my way home in the evening. The particular camera angle used in a particular scene of a particular film.
My Favorite Memory
This is a hard one, but one I return to on a regular basis was when I was in the 6th grade. It was a Thursday afternoon and the classes were having a halloween party. There was no school the following day and I was excited about just being home and not doing anything except playing and maybe going shopping for a new G.I. Joe toy with my mother. Any time the air gets crisp and the leaves begin to change I get nostalgic for the pure child like happiness of those days.
My Favorite Art Style
Currently illustrative paintings that have a sense of urgency and movement.
