Artist Inspiration: Maira Kalman

New York artist

Maira Kalman

is famous for her

work in

The New Yorker

and

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.

The Principles of Uncertainty

(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

here.

Peace to you right where you are.

    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!
