i found this interview of maira kalman this week and wanted to share it, because she is one of my favorite people of all time in the design world. i love her children’s books, i love her blogs, i love her handwriting, i love the way her mind works and that she expresses herself so effectively with both written and visual language. i love the wacky characters she paints and her ability to convey a moment by bringing you in to her calm sense of acuity.
her latest year-long blog and the pursuit of happiness from january – december 2009 is still up on the new york times site if you’d like to read it. i suggest you get some tea and do it when you have some decompression time to spare for something wonderful!
