Google Doodle for Mary Blair
Mary Blair’s 100th birthday anniversary is honored with a colorful Google Doodle logo. The Walt Disney storyboard artist, born on October 21st, 1911, is fondly remembered for her often whimsical, illustrative style in children’s books (notably Little Golden), advertisements, and concept art for classic Walt Disney animated films. And she especially was known for her wonderful use of color, as highlighted in a new Oscars tribute video.
“…Although Mary Blair is perhaps best known for the design of Disneyland’s “it’s a small world” attraction and park murals, her concept artwork for “Cinderella,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Peter Pan” in the 1950s, as well as for earlier short subjects, reflects her unique sensibility and lasting influence on animation…”  —The Academy on Mary Blair’s World of Color - A Centennial Tribute
