I can't even tell you how much I love Maira Kalman
But I'll try because she is so freaking fabulous. She's probably most famous for her New Yorker covers and her illustrated children's books, but she's also had a great "Pursuit of Happiness" blog on nytimes.com. My personal favorite is her series on Monticello and Thomas Jefferson, but I think they're all amazing. She also has illustrated books for adults, and I'm thinking of getting one and tearing out the pages to frame for my dorm. She has a new book coming out in October based on her blog, "And the Pursuit of Happiness." Aah I die. Go look at her stuff now. Plus she's from Tel Aviv, gotta love a good Jew.
