Artist Inspiration: Maira Kalman

January 19, 2011

New York artist
Maira Kalman
is famous for her
work in
The New Yorker
children's books,
and I find her
simply delightful.

I  own many of her books,
and each feels like a little
treasure trove of wit and wisdom.

I think what I like most
about her work
is how it is consistently
one-off and childlike
(not childish!)
in its whimsy.

(Penguin Press HC)
is more fun than I can say.

Maira blogged for the New Yorker
(And the Pursuit of Happiness),
and you can enjoy her posts

Peace to you right where you are.

  1. What a great style she has. So completely her own. I like people like that.

    And that patisserie? It's amaaaaazing. I think *I* would be the one in muddy wellies, trailing my dirt in after me!!

    Oh, the shame!
