This week was Mary Blair‘s 103rd birthday and I thought that I should pay her a tribute.
Mary Blair was a concept artist for Disney and worked on classics like Peter Pan, Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland. She has a very distinct style with an amazing sense for colours.
She also designed the disney attraction « It’s a Small World », THE best way to finish a day in Disneyland with friends, screeching and singing along hysterically!
Here’s some of her concept art, I really love her environments, they look simplistic but they are so well designed and thought through.
Here’s my homage. I tried copying her simplistic and cutesy style. Hope you like it!
