A Mary Blair Christmas Card


(click for full-sized version)

I should have waited until the holidays to post this, but I couldn’t resist. Cool stuff like this has to be shared immediately. I recently ran across this holiday card by Mary and Lee Blair and had to make a scan of it. Michael Sporn is also posting some worthwhile Blair-related artwork.

    Very beautiful, elaborate artwork! Of course, I wouldn’t expect less from the Blairs.

    I’m probably going to be the only one that thinks it’s ugly, huh?

    Nah, Keith – rather you’d be honest than anything. I don’t think the line work in the sky works at all myself, but overall I like it’s sweetness. I’ve been trying to get around to making my own art for cards for years, but thinking I should just buckle down to one piece and reprint it to save my sanity…
