Design Sponge has a wonderful Q & A with Maria Kalman! I invite you to read it.
Maria is one of my all time favourite illustrators. She is a collector of things and uses her illustrations to document the world around her.
I had the opportunity to see Maria Kalman: Various Illuminations (of a Crazy World) at the contemporary Jewish Museum in SF this past summer. It’s on until Oct 26. Then it will be showing at at the NYC Jewish museum in the spring/summer.
She draws great dogs, too
