You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Mary Blair On Display

On her always-interesting blog, story artist Jenny Lerew recently posted photos of the Mary Blair exhibit at the Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco which runs through March 18, 2008. The exhibit not only celebrates Mary’s joyful use of color and exuberant imagination but also allows visitors to view the actual works of art (many of them created for Disney productions), a privilege few of us are blessed enough to have very often, if ever. If you are going to be in San Francisco before March 18 be sure to visit the Museum and be dazzled by the colorful work of Ms. Blair (in addition to the Museum’s other exhibits, of which Jenny also gives us a taste). And be sure to read Jenny’s insightful thoughts on Mary’s continuing influence.
