Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney with Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.
For those of you that dabble in graphic design, scrapbook, or just like Disney then looking at the art of Disney is always inspirational.
When I am designing a scrapbook kit or page I love to look at some of the Vintage Disney work and use bits of it in my creations. Let me share with you some of my favorites…
MAGIC, COLOR, FLAIR: The World of Mary Blair
One of the most well know artists from Disney’s past is Mary Blair. She introduce a modernist style to Walt Disney and his studio, and for nearly 30 years, you saw her work in Disney films and in the theme parks.
Her most famous contributions are It’s a Small World and the mural on the 4th floor of Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Some of her work is currently on exhibit through September at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco.
As part of this exhibit they release MAGIC, COLOR, FLAIR: The World of Mary Blair, a catalog of her work including her precocious early paintings, concept art from her Disney days, and the wildly wonderful artistic innovations of her later life.
Designing Disney – Imagineering and the Art of the Show
Designing Disney – Imagineering and the Art of the Show focuses on the extraordinary contributions of the late John Hench, who, at the age of 94, still came into his office at Imagineering each day.
His principles of theme park design, character design, and use of color made him a legendary figure, not only for Disney fans but also for students and aficionados of architecture, engineering, and design.
