Meet the Mary Blair Google Doodle

Every now and then Google celebrates a person’s birthday or anniversary in way of a Google Doodle, and today it is the turn of Walt Disney’s very own Mary Blair. Fans of the franchise today will not even have heard of the artist, but she was famous for her work in the 1940s and 1950s.

Some of the movies that Blair worked on came on to be all time classics, such as Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella. She did not just work for Disney though, as her drawings have also appeared in a selection of children’s books. The moment you see her work you can tell that her main focus was centered towards kids.

The Doodle that appears on Google’s homepage is like a selection of prints all stitched together like a patchwork quilt in a way. However, taking the main focus is a representation of how Mary Blair would have drawn herself if she ever had the chance to do so. Believe it or not millions of people from around the world will see her work if they visit all Disneyland theme parks, as many of her character designs are used in the attraction “It’s a Small World” – oh no, now I have that tune in my head now.
