After many, many months of gearing up for it, we're now about one week away from the opening of the Cartoon Art Museum's newest exhibition, The Art and Flair of Mary Blair. More than fifty pieces of one of the all-time great Disney artists will be on display, many of which have never been seen by the public.

You can buy the book of the same name here, although what you *really* need to do is book yourself a flight to San Francisco as soon as humanly possible. Our Edward Gorey exhibition runs through January, as does our Lark Pien spotlight, I Am Ten, and you can also check out the work of Hellen Jo in our Small Press Spotlight (along with our permanent collection of classic comic strips, political cartoons, animation and other stuff).

And just to whet your appetites a bit, here are some choice images from the exhibition, starting with a Baker's Chocolate ad:

And some Alice In Wonderland concept art:

The cover to I Can Fly (we'll have the original cover art and some interior pages on display, too):

Here's Mary in her studio:
