It's love and it's work. . . .
~ Maira Kalman
One of my favorite artists, the illustrator and writer Maira Kalman, the subject of this video from the "Epiphany" series at THNKR, a YouTube channel, talks insightfully about her identity, love of books, art, life, and mortality:
Kalman is the illustrator most recently of Michael Pollan's Food Rules (2011) and the author and illustrator of And the Pursuit of Happiness (2010). Her most recent children's book is 13 Words (2010).
