Google Doodle Celebrates Mary Blair

Google honors celebrated Disney artist Mary Blair with a stylized "Google Doodle" on what would be her 100th birthday.

Mary Blair was born in Oklahoma on October 21, 1911. She is well known for her colorful style and simple shapes and patterns. Her concept art inspired the animation used in several Disney animated features including Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella and Peter Pan.

Enamored with Blair's quirky artistic style, Walt Disney recruited her to design "it's a small world" for the 1964 New York World's Fair. In 1966, the successful attraction debuted at the Disneyland theme park in Anaheim.
