Hail Mary

You won't find me giving many props to Disney but I do admire the work of late Disney animator Mary Blair.

The first image is from her concepts for "It's a Small World." Blair also worked on my favorite Disney movie Alice in Wonderland. I think I prefer her stills, though, now after being introduced to her work. Of course, I love the retro quality, as well as the jaunty paper cut look and vivid hues.

Mention of her has been circulating some blogs as of late because there is a new book out, titled The Art of Mary Blair
