Oh boy, it's that time again!! Time for materialism and consumerist values to rear their Swarovski crystal-encrusted heads and possess us to purchase things we don't really need! Or, to put it more bluntly, everyone acts like I do all year! Finally! Acceptance!

Mary Blair was an illustrator for the Walt Disney company with a very distinct, trippy style. She would draw mock-ups for animated features and attractions, but, sadly, most were never used. It's a Small World and Sleeping Beauty are probably the best sample of her artistic style, but she also drew awesome spec art for Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland (among other films). Recently her illustrations were used in an abridged version of Alice, and while the text isn't as good as the original, the artwork is, in my opinion, fifty-kajillion times better.
