I am a huge fan of the illustrations of animator extraordinaire Mary Blair. She is most popular for being one of the first women to bring delightful use of colour to Disney's animation in films like Alice in Wonderland, Peterpan and Cinderella!
She also illustrated several lovely children's books including Baby's House, I can Fly! and the Golden Book of Little Verses. You can get all of these and more in the Mary Blair Treasury of Golden Books.
I love the simple childhood innocence of these pictures and the use of bright colour and doll-like eyes! Here are a few new illustrators who's works have unmistakably been influenced by Mary Blair! Take a peek:
