The Pursuit of Happiness
I hope that you've been reading Maira Kalman's beautifully illustrated monthly blog at the New York Times, "The Pursuit of Happiness," in which she is exploring American democracy. If you haven't, you should definitely check it out. I was so excited to see that this month's entry, which was published tonight, features one of the Jello molds from the Gowanus Studios competition I posted about yesterday! You can see a picture of the original mold here. Here are some of the other illustrations from Maira's previous blog entries (some are from last year's blog, "The Principles of Uncertainty"). They are wonderful in the context of her posts, but I also think they are beautiful enough to stand alone.
