“Here Are My Impressions…” – Maira Kalman

Watch the full episode. See more SundayArts.

I just found this little video while I was researching Maira Kalman's show, "Various Illuminations (Of A Crazy World)", which I'll be able to see in NYC at the end of the month when I take my daughter to college orientation. I have wanted to see this since last year when it started to travel and feel so lucky to catch it just before it closes. I love this woman's art, point of view and life. Real. Honest. Authentic. Things I strive for. I think you'll enjoy this little peek of her and her creative process.

    OMG….how DARE you not pick up the phone and call me, yelling into the receiver that you posted this fabulous clip??!!!! I see that Maira and I have the same glasses and very similar rings. This, of course, makes me feel closer to the light of her genius. Thank you for this one. Wow!

    i am swept away!!!!
    go drink her essence in and bring back breadcrumbs,
    even the tiniest morsels will nourish us!
