Wikipedia says Eyvind Earle (April 26, 1916 – July 20, 2000) was an American artist, author and illustrator, noted for his contribution to the background illustration and styling of Disney animated films in the 1950s.
His official site has numerous galleries for perusal. I especially recommend the Serigraph section – you’ll notice in images such as the one above a measured style recalling Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, for which he was responsible [cite] for styling, backgrounds and color.

This site lets you make, share & browse virtual mix tapes (up to 8 tracks per mix). There are some limitations on how many tracks you can skip, etc. but it’s only to keep the music companies happy.
While you’re there check out The Inferno by Graeme Revell feat. Emma Shapplin from the score for The Red Planet. It’s the first track on the mix in that link & it gives me the goose-bumps.
