Mary Balir




I looked up Mary Blair from the book I bought today and sure enough she has a lot of history and lots of people already are familiar with her work. A google search will turn up some good pics and info.

This from:

“Mary Blair's contribution to contemporary design is sweeping -- and impacted the worlds of animation, publishing, institutions, products, advertising and even fine art.
Blair's lush, minimalist and lyrical gouache-based work echoed the simpler times in which the art was created (ate 1940s to the mid 1970s), yet her design reverberates today for those appreciative of the simplicity and innocence she communicated through color, shape and form.”

Best known for her production and design work on Disney’s ‘Alice in wonderland’ and ‘Peter pan’

Yep, that just about sums my position up. I think there are some things that can only be achieved in analogue. At least, in an efficient way.
And that doodle looks cool blown up.
