Mary Blair was one of the profound influences on the world of animation, injecting it with an artistic flair and delightful simplicity that also placed her work in the category of fine art. Last year Google celebrated her 100th birthday with a Google Doodle, to honor her career with the Disney Company. It brought my attention to her Wikipedia biography that had no copyright free portrait image – and not even the traditional infobox that bio portraits are placed in. I’ve been meaning to rectify this for a while and finally got around to it. A refreshing addition to Portraits of the Creators.
