Kate Gavino Profiles Authors in ‘Last Night’s Reading’ Tumblr

6AE3LscKate Gavino (pictured, via) has launched an art blog called “Last Night’s Reading.”

This New York City-based writer regularly attends reading events and subsequently creates drawings that feature an author and a meaningful quote. So far, Gavino has created portraits featuring Augusten Burroughs, Zadie Smith, David Levithan, and more.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Gavino explained that she became “inspired to start the project because I would go to so many of these readings and hear authors dole out such great advice. I didn’t just want to tweet about it, so I decided to start illustrating them.” What do you think?
