This blog post is a big toast (with high-pitched cheers) to Mary Blair’s 100th birthday and her many merry concept art done for Walt Disney. All the whimsical stories felt concrete in our eyes as kids because of her beautiful and vibrant illustrations for Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Cinderella.
