Maira Kalman is an American artist, illustrator, writer, and designer known for her paintings and writings about the human condition. She is an author and illustrator of over 30 books for adults and children, and her work is exhibited in museums worldwide.
Many of you have probably seen her stunning illustration on the cover of The New York Times magazine. In addition to the colorful and beautiful paintings, I like her way of life and the way she draws while keeping her own style.
She has been running a drawing blog for a long time. She and she have published several books for adults and children. It's astonishing when you consider the amount of her illustrations in real life. Among her paintings, I really like the chair picture below. If anyone draws a picture by unplugging themselves and putting themselves down, it will look like the picture below.
She writes a political column for the US Democratic Party called ,'Pursuit of happiness'.
Below are some of her personal favorites.
