Happy Birthday Mary Blair!

Yay, Google! Way to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Mary Blair with this sweet Google Doodle! It's got me thinking about Mary Blair again. I pulled out this wonderful book, and flipped through. I've shared before about how amazing and inspiring I find her work for Disney, but I am finding myself really attracted to some of her more personal pieces. Her website is an amazing source of information and imagery, and did you know you could buy prints!? Oh, boy. Here are some of my current favorites.

How sweet is this plate? I love the colors!

I absolutely love how the string spells out her name,
and again the colors are stunning. And maybe this is weird,
but I really love the teeth on the littlest boy!

I really like the different line qualities used and how elegantly
they come together to create a visually unified piece.
