Mastercard’s Mary Blair Tribute

I’ve been wondering who did this Mastercard commercial I keep seeing on TV, which is a nicely done hand drawn piece, but perhaps a bit too derivative of the Mary Blair-designed Disney short THE LITTLE HOUSE (1952). A quick online search reveals that it was directed by Sarah Roper out of Sherbert in the UK. The Sherbert website has many nice examples of work by the studio’s various directors. Also should be noted that Blair’s LITTLE HOUSE is coming out on dvd next week, on the must-have Disney Treasures “Rarities” dvd.
