Mary Blair's 100th Birthday!

One of my favourite ladies of all time was born today, Mary Blair is the artistic genius behind early Disney, from the 1940's through to the 70's. Her style became synonymous with the brand and even if you've never heard of her you have undoubtedly seen and loved her work,(she worked on the concept art for Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland to name a few). She also did illustrations for children's books, magazine ads, and other things. There are many illustrators working today that owe kudos to Mary Blair(whether they realize it or not.)
