    I have been to the cartoon art museum once and enjoyed it tremendously! it´s a small place, but the ticket is worth every penny!
    (and their shop has a nice little collection of good comics)

    Mary Blair gets more than a fair share of attention on this blog, but whenever I see a Blair painting I’ve never seen (like the one above,) I lose interest in griping.

    I followed the link above to the other images, holding my 3-year old daughter on my lap. She immediately recognized the dark guards’ horses from Cinderella. Maybe that’s proof that more of Blair’s art “reaches the screen” than we realize.

    Thanks so much for mentioning this! Now I have something perfect to do with my mom when she visits me in a week! (We both love Mary Blair).

    As far as I’m concerned, Blair doesn’t get enough attention here. I’m looking forward to taking a trip down to see this show.
