I LOVE LOVE LOVE MARY BLAIR SO MUCH!
I've always been impressed by her work and I think it's such a great thing to honor her. It's so sad that so much of her work ended up just in the Disney archives and lots of people never saw it. Although I also love that she was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty. I JUST LOVE MARY BLAIR WHAT A BAMF. PLS DISCUSS!
