We chatted with Kate via email and she discussed her inspiration for the project: "I was 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."
Though she is not a professional artist, she notes that she "wanted to hone [her] people-drawing skills" and that the blog "brings together two of [her] passions: writing and drawing."
Kate is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in xoJane, The Hairpin, and The Frisky.
