Mary Blair

Color, charm, wonder, delight… I could go on about Mary Blair, the famous illustrator and designer for Walt Disney, who was also an illustrator and set designer for famous projects beyond the Disney dynasty. When I was a kid, I always admired her work in our Disney records, animations, movies, and rides — most notably my favorite ride, “It’s A Small World.”

Ah yes, this is one of those afternoons where I wish I had the magical drawing wrist of Mary Blair. That lady knew her color.
