Maira Kalman: Portraits in Creativity

by Sarah September 08, 2014

I’m off today on a little adventure with my husband to get my creative fix and pick up some art supplies in San Francisco. In the meantime, I thought you would all enjoy this incredible video on Maira Kalman about Creativity. The video is part of a series by: Gael Towey, a former Creative Director for Martha Stewart Living magazine. “Gael Towey’s great love is storytelling. “Portraits in Creativity”, the series of short-form videos directed and produced by Towey, seeks to capture the bravery of artists and artisans, and reveals the visual seduction of the creative process.”

One of my favorite parts of the video is towards the end when she is learning ballet for Peter and the Wolf.

In addition, she talks about the book she created: Girls Standing on Lawns with MoMA and Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket). I purchased this book on one of my last trips to New York. I absolutely love it and was so excited that Maira shared about its creation in the video.

Have a great Monday everyone and I look forward to sharing my own portraits in creativity in the coming weeks.
