Do you like the new Autumnal face-life the old blog got? I felt like it was time for a little change.
Today I'm here with another painting from the 'Forest, and a new edition to the world of my Alice books that I picked up Powell's recently.
I have such a love for the red-eyed individuals and creatures of this world. And I wouldn't mind owning that dress...no sir.
The paintings are taken from her concept illustrations from the Walt Disney film (she had a great deal to do with the look of Disney's Cinderella, Peter Pan, and Alice in Wonderland, which is why all three have such a similar sensibility and aesthetic).
I almost passed on buying the book, because quite a few of the illustrations appear in The Art and Flair of Mary Blair, the excellent monograph/biography about her (which I snapped up a few years ago). But there are also quite a few that don't, so now it too lives at my house. I also contemplated the Cinderella that was also released with her illustrations, but just decided on Alice for now. Lovely Alice.
I hope the week is going along nicely for you so far!
