(Disneyland, 1965) When Walt Disney instructed Rolly Crump to design a clock for the facade of "It's a Small World" at Disneyland, Rolly called his friend and collaborator Mary Blair and asked her to create an illustration that he could begin working from. This inked sketch was created by Blair on thin paper which has been mounted to artist's board, and was used by Rolly to design the clock for the front of the "It's a Small World" building. The animated clock has been an iconic aspect of the attraction ever since it opened in 1966. This original illustration is the very first drawing used in the creation of the attraction's clock, and represents the creativity and artistry of both Blair and Crump. The drawing measures 6"x4.75" matted within a 16.75"x15.25" frame, and the condition is very good.
