Disney concept art by Mary Blair

Mary Blair was born in 1911 in Oklahoma. She began her career as a well received fine art watercolorist, but soon moved to working in the animation industry, most notably for Walt Disney Studios. Her art was a great favorite of Walt's. Mary Blair worked on concept art for Saludos Amigos and the Three Caballeros, and was credited as art supervisor. She is most famous for the wonderful concept art she did for Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and Cinderella. She was credited in these films as color stylist. Walt Disney loved Mary Blair's sense of color styling, and asked her to help design the Disney exhibit and ride "It's a Small World" in the 1960's. She also designed the 90 foot high mural which is in the lobby of Disney's Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World which opened in 1971. Through four different decades her artistic vision and color styling were a large part of many of the most beloved creations of the Walt Disney Company.

Disney concept art by John Hench

John Hench was born in Iowa in 1908, and worked for Walt Disney for 65 years. Beginning in 1939, he worked in the story department, then on backgrounds, layouts, art direction, and effects animation. He worked on many films including Fantasia, Dumbo, The Three Caballeros, Make Mine Music, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan. He worked on the special effects for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and helped the film win an Academy Award for Best Special Effects. In the 1950's John Hench began working for the department which later was called Walt Disney Imagineering. His job was to help design the attractions for Disneyland, and was the main designer for many attractions including Cinderella's Castle and Space Mountain. For the next 50 years he worked on designing every Disneyland worldwide, and Disneyworld. His name became synonymous with Disney theme parks, and John Hench became known as Disney's Chief of Imagineering. Only recently was it discovered that he also did some amazing concept art for Cinderella, and the handful of pieces of concept art he did for that film are some of the rarest, beautiful, and most collectible pieces of Disney concept art known to exist.
