3 Cheers for Mary Blair!

Here are 3 reasons why I am in love with the artwork of Mary Blair.

1) I just received a copy of a Golden Book called I Can Fly, (thanks Mom!) which was illustrated by Mary Blair in 1951 and has some great colors and ├╝ber cute drawings. I especially love these little corners of paintings. The colors on that tree are amazing!

2) Alice in Wonderland. Mary Blair worked on the animation design and color styling for this film (as well as Peter Pan).

3) It's a Small World in Disneyland is a perfect example of the world of Mary Blair. Look how perfectly she executed the design based on one of her original sketches.
