"She was an extraordinary artist, and Walt thought very highly of her. She was the most amazing colorist of all time. I don't even think Matisse could hold a candle to her - and I mean that very sincerely."
- Marc Davis Disney Animator, Imagineer on Mary Blair
One time imagineer and current Pulitzer Prize winning editorial artist Ann Telnaes recently chimed in on the recent Small World refurbishment over at Flipanimation.net.
"Like many of my former CalArts classmates, I'm a fan of Mary Blair's work and this redo sounds like another unfortunate move by people in the company who have no business making creative decisions. It also sounds very political, adding a big 'Up with America' scene at the end. Maybe they should include animated Bush and Cheney Dolls."
