I've been thinking and feeling about this for a long time. About Frida Kahlo. I adore her. Anyone who remotely knows of me, knows this. But. The one working female Artist (Illustrator. Author. Designer) who holds my heart like an older Sister, is without a shadow of a doubt, Maira Kalman.
I have written about her here, here, and here. The Wall Street Journal has a recent article:
I have a money pot of coins collecting so I can ring Julie at the Julie Saul Gallery (we've already emailed one another) and invest in my first Maira original. #dreamsdocometrue
Please don't classify me as a super-fan or crazy stalker-in-training peep. (Have you listened to this recent radio interview?)
I truly want to grow up to be just like her. Who wouldn't love her!
