A handful of pieces inspired by the art of Walt Disney animator Mary Blair.
Google saluted Walt Disney artist Mary Blair with a doodle on its home page today (Oct. 21, 2011). Blair — known for the concept art she created for the Disneyland ride "It's a Small World" and Disney movies Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Song of the South and Cinderella — would have been 100. Her style, as seen in the mural she drew for Disneyland, influenced numerous other artists who grew up watching the movies she worked.
Big fan looking to score a collector's item? While many of the collectibles in the store Magic of Mary Blair (which is run by her nieces) are sold out, plenty can still be found on eBay and Etsy.
Above is "Meet the Tweedles," a limited-edition reproduction of concept art from Alice in Wonderland that has been recreated as giclee on canvas. For hardcore Mary Blair fans, the hefty $250 price tag just might be worth it.
Love the lady but don't have the cash? No worries, most of the other collectibles are easier on the wallet.
