    The highly stylized works helped create the look for the beloved Disney classic.

    Mary Blair might not be a familiar name to casual Disney fans, but (for those who don't know) she was an immensely talented artist and animator who definitely left her mark on the entire Disney Company.

    A famous example of her many notable contributions is the look of It’s A Small World, which was designed in her signature style.

    But, Mary also did a lot of work behind-the-scenes, she was the lead concept artist for Disney animated classic films such as Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, and Cinderella.
