Mary Blair was the concept artist and color supervisor for many of Walt Disney’s most prominent animated films. She worked in a very stylized and graphic way, often using bright colors. In addition to her animation work, she also illustrated dozens of children’s books and designed many of the attractions for Walt Disney World including the It’s a Small World ride and the Contemporary resort.
Wanting to add more human elements to my portfolio and get a bit more ‘adult’ in my work, I’ve been working on this ‘cabin in the woods’ style piece recently and I’m pretty happy with the end product!

'Space Wars Fact And Fiction' (Octopus UK, 1980) was one of cash-in books slapped together in the wake of Star Wars. It featured a collection of stories with lavish illustrations by uncredited artists (one of them is likely to be Gerry Wood, a prolific British comic artist and illustrator) and an oddly out of place 1960s-era comic strip ‘Space Cadet’. Not very Star Warsy, but back then publishers were shoving out anything and everything as long as it had a spaceship on the front cover and had the words ‘wars’, ‘space’, or ‘star’ on it!
Nice! Even the retro cash-grabs are cool. Looks like you can get this one cheap on Amazon, too.
