100th post!

Hello readers, and welcome to the 100th post of create, a blog by cat baldwin!

It wasn’t too long ago that we were celebrating create’s one year anniversary so this has been a banner year for celebrations.

To commemorate this occasion I thought it would be fun to share the cover I drew for Comic City in 2006.

I was a Senior in college at the time, with New York already on my mind, clearly. I’d been self-publishing comics for a couple of years, I had a strip in the college paper and I’d traveled to San Francisco a few times to participate at the Alternative Press Expo.

I think it was the summer of 2006 that I traveled to New York for the last time before I’d move in 2008. I was desperate to finish my last year of college (yes, it took me more than 4 years to get through an Art Degree) so that I could make definitive plans to move. My friend Marc Calvary, with whom I stayed during my trips out, was egging me on to do it already!

At long last, here I am… still! Mike and I moved to New York together during the summer of 2008 and having been living in and loving the city since then.

I’ve been fortunate enough to find work as a freelancer which allows me the time to put into comics, illustration, painting and art of other mediums in addition, of course, to blogging.

It’s been a great 5 years since I drew that cover and I know the next 5 will be just as great.

As always, thank you for reading create!
