A brief history of my literary crushes

In my book, Last Night’s Reading, I attend book readings and draw the authors’ portraits alongside a funny, intelligent, or thought-provoking quote from the night. I’ve drawn about 400 authors so far, many of whom I’ve idolized for years. As much as I love drawing authors, I love drawing my favorite book characters just as much.

Since I’ve been a booknerd my whole life, I’ve had my fair share of literary crushes. Sure, they’re not my main driving force for reading, but they do make the books more enjoyable. Here are some of the most important ones through the years.
