Christopher Baldwin


Christopher Baldwin

Christopher Baldwin (born February 25, 1973) is an American illustrator and author of several webcomics,[1][2] the most significant being Bruno, a look at the life of an introspective young woman set in the real world.

Christopher was born in Montague, Massachusetts and spent his childhood in Greenfield, Massachusetts. By his own account he had drawn over 30 comic books by 1991. After leaving college early in 1994, he took on various freelance jobs, and travelled to Europe where he took source pictures to incorporate in the Bruno comic. He similarly travelled across America, taking source photographs, settling in Portland, Oregon. He presently resides in Olympia, Washington.

Christopher's other works have mainly been shorter webcomic series, some being intentionally designed to attract syndication. These tend to be lighter in tone than Bruno. Examples are Shepard and May, published for 5 weeks in 2000; Kim in Love, published from October 1, 2001 until October 22, 2001; and Madge's Diary, published from November 5, 2001 until January 18, 2002. The last such strip was Little Dee, about a little girl adopted by a bear, released on June 7, 2004 for syndication, and completed in April 2010. Concurrently in 2010, Baldwin was publishing the science fiction webcomic Spacetrawler.[2]

Aside from comics, Christopher Baldwin is also the author of a novel entitled Loved into Submission - a dark existential farce.

Bruno

Bruno is a webcomic that was written and drawn by Baldwin from January 1, 1996 to February 14, 2007. Its story lines revolve around the life of an introspective young woman, set in the real world. Her unusual name comes from the Italian philosopher Giordano Bruno.

Little Dee

Little Dee is a webcomic by Baldwin that began on June 7, 2004, that the Washington Post termed "charming",[3] and others called "genuinely innocent and funny", "never unpleasant",[1] and "age appropriate".[4] The webcomic is about a little girl (Dee) who becomes lost in the woods. She is befriended by three animals: a bear, a vulture and a dog.[1] The animals talk; Dee doesn't.

Spacetrawler

Spacetrawler is a space opera webcomic that started on January 1, 2010. The plot involves a group of men and women from Earth who have been kidnapped and pressed into service by an alien as part of a plan to end the enslavement of another alien species.
