Concept art painting of Mad Tea Party by Mary Blair

Alice in Wonderland 1951 Disney Studios

Why is a raven like a writing desk? This fantastic painting by Mary Blair used to inspire other Disney artists was done of course for Alice in Wonderland, the film in which Mary Blair had the most effect in the style and color. You can almost feel the happy insanity of this classic scene with the Mad Hatter and Alice herself. And a very happy un-birthday to you.

According to cartoon historian John Canemaker "It would be difficult for anyone not to enjoy the witty, utterly charming art of Mary Blair, a dazzling and prolific sorceress of color and form. She saw the world in a fresh, new way and brought a special childlike beauty and gaiety to the works of print, theme parks and movies."
He is so right, and her influence on Walt Disney spanned decades.
