Mary Blair is the woman responsible for the design in some of Disney's early, dreamy full length feature cartoons. Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty...Mary Blair did concept art for all of these movies.Its a Small World was entirely designed by Mary Blair. Even if you aren't a huge fan of the ride, you have to admit that the concept art and the ride's design are absolutely fantastic.One day perhaps I will be able to afford some original Mary Blair concept art, until then I will be content with coffee table and Children's books: The Art and Flair of Mary Blair, Cinderella, I can Fly, or Alice in Wonderland. Alternatively, I could spend hours perusing the Mary Blair flickr photo set or watching fabulous Disney movies.
