I&PG- 060, The Colorful #Herstory of Mary Blair

May 10, 2018

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast where we celebrate women working in animation and explore representation behind the scenes and on the screen.

Do you love the color styling of Disney classic animated films like Peter Pan, The Three Caballeros, or Alice in Wonderland?

Do you love the designs and color of the It’s a Small World ride at Disneyland? 

Or maybe you’ve seen her beautiful illustrations in adorable childrens books like “I Can Fly.”

Indeed, today, we fly back through history in celebration of MARY BLAIR!

Hosted by Rebecca Nelson and Cassie Soliday.
