Its a small world after all..

If you've taken a ride on "Its a Small World" at Walt Disney theme parks, you know the distinct playful, colorful, and vibrant style of the attraction. The name of late artist behind those well-known designs is Mary Blair. Today Google celebrates the Disney artist's life and work, and so must I. For on this day would have been her 100th birthday. Her playful and distinctive designs had a huge influence in my childhood years and still does till this day. Ive always been amazed at the simplicity of her style, every time i come across her work i feel a wonderful sense of nostalgia. Her art is is rendered in many Disney pieces, such as Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and Cinderella. Mary Blair's work will forever influence and inspire.
