MASTER: Mary Blair



IZ DALEKIH PEDESETIH, Meri Bler vam salje Season's Greetings + A memory of winter long ago:




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ovo je, dakle, ta Meri, magicna ilustratorka koja je, kako stvari stoje, umesala prste u sve sto najvise volim iz Dizni produkcije. Evo ukratko dela njenog sarma u ovoj jednoj slici: siva podloga sa belim mrazovitim biljkicama, cinoberi i razne roze, lepi ferlaufi, trunke hladnih detalja i malo crnih akcenata.



Pa onda iz bele bele vrlo chic scene iz igloa, na zimski zabavni park, pa lepi geometrizovani predeo nalik skandinavskom selu od slatkisa. Pa odatle pravo u grad.






Cudno slicne scene grada i prirode, oba kadra su kao neka predivna ziva dzungla.



U radu Meri Bler kao da je sabijeno sve sto obozavam i sto u mojoj glavi cini moju mrezu sa ljudima mimo prostora i vremena. Od pre nekog vremena je naravno i ona u toj mrezi. Ova dzunglica od malopre neodoljivo podseca na Rusoa, a ovaj sareni zamak ili grad koji slavi je bas kao Kle.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jedna od prvih ilustracija koja mi padne na pamet pri pomenu njenog imena je naslovna strana knjige I Can Fly, i naravno odmah uz to setim se i ove fotografije na kojoj Jackie Kennedy kao dete sedi u dovratku sa svojom malom puslicom od cerke koja drzi u rukama upravo ovu knjigu (via fashionation). Preko okeana odstampani i pokretni crtezi Meri Bler su ono sto je ovde Ida Ciric i Dusan Petricic. Narocito ida Ciric, sa svom tom letecom decicom, prirodom i zenskom drazesnoscu. Comfort food u svetu knjiga.




A onda, ona je upetljana i u Alisu i Pepeljugu. Da li ste videli njene storibordove za Alisu!? To je pravo blago! Magija koju sam vec izobozavala javno ovde. To i jos svasta u knjizi The Art and Flair of Mary Blair.



Takodje - Kabaljerosi su njeni! Ne vredi, moram da vas razmrdam malo, evo ga Blame it on Samba. O-bozavam!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Evo je Meri sa gos'n Diznijem.



Njihov kapitalni zajednicki projekat je deo Diznilenda koji se zove It's a Small World. Prvi put podignut '64. sada ga mozete videti i u kaliforniji, i na floridi, u Parizu, Tokiju i Hong Kongu. Evo Polaroida iz te '64-te (via starling-travel), pa kako je igledao tada, kako danju, kako nocu. Secerna vuna sa novogodisnjim lampicama.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Za kraj, Meri kako lovi inspiraciju...



... i dve plocice za multiplikovanje na vasem desktopu - regularna i tamnija, pa birajte koliko zelite da vam trepere ringe-ringe-raja klinci koji se neprekidno ponavljaju koliko god da vam se desktop pruza.



(kliknite na svaku od slika, kada se otvori u punoj velicini, desni klik na sliku, save image as..., pa je na pc-ju otvorite u windows picture and fax viewer-u ili bilo kom programcicu za pregled slika, desni klik na sliku i set as desktop background. trebalo bi automatski da se isponavlja tako da imate neprekidno polje ove decice. ako imate problem, pisite)

FROM THE FAR 50s, Mary Blair sends you Season's Greetings + A memory of winter long ago: see clip
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is, then, that Mary, a magical illustrator who, as it seems, had her fingers in what I love the most from Disney’s production. In short, here is a part of her charm in this single image: grey background with white frosty plants, vermillion and different pinks, nice gradients, dashes of cold details and some black accents.
And then from white white very chic igloo scene, onto the winter amusement park, then nice geometrized site looking like the Scandinavian village made of candies. And from there straight to the city.

Strangely similar - city and nature scenes, both sequences are as some gorgeous living jungle.

In Mary Blair’s work, it seems as if everything I adore and everything that in my head makes my network with people outside the space and time is compressed. Since some time ago, she is of course also within this network. This little jungle mentioned above irresistibly reminds of Rousseau, and this colorful castle or the city celebrating is just like Klee.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One of the first illustrations occurring to me at the mention of her name is the I Can Fly book cover, and obviously right away I remembered this photograph in which Jackie Kennedy sits like a child within door frame with her little meringue daughter holding this particular book in her hands (via fashionation). Drawings by Mary Blair, printed and moving across the ocean, are the same thing as Ida Ciric and Dusan Petricic works are here. Especially Ida Ciric, with all those flying children, nature and feminine gracefulness. Comfort food in the world of books.

And then, she also has her fingers in Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella. Did you see her story boards for Alice!? It is a true treasure! The magic I already publicly worshiped here. That and a bunch of other stuff in The Art and Flair of Mary Blair book.

Also – the Caballeros are hers! Can’t help it, I have to kick you a bit, here is Blame it on Samba!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Here’s Mary with Mr. Disney. Their major joint project is the part of Disneyland called It's a Small World. Initially built in 1964, now you can see it in California, Florida, Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Here’s a Polaroid photo from the mentioned 1964 (via starling-travel), and how it looked like then, in the day, and in the night. Sugar cotton candy with New Years lights.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In the end, how Mary hunts inspiration… see image … and two tiles for multiplying on your desktop – regular one and darker one, so choose how much you’d like the children hopping ‘round to blink in continuous repeating as far as your desktop goes. (click each of the images, when it opens in full size, right click > save image as…, and then open it on your PC with Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, or any other image viewer, right click on it and choose “set as desktop background” option. It should automatically multiply so that you have continuous field of these children. If any issues, drop a line)

  1. meri je opasna, a mene je podsetila
    na slovenackog slikara Jozea Ciuhu, pogledajte njegove akvarele, to je loodilo.Naravno, vise su "likovnjacki" nego "primenjaski", ali meni je to genijalno. Meri mi je, iako sjajna, malo previse slatka, kao kad pojedes kilo marcipana, koji obozavas, ali kilo...
