There are so many rad women in our history. I wanted to start an illustration project that highlights the inspirational ladies of who I look up to and admire for their courage and creativity.
Frida Kahlo was known as Mexican muralist Diego Rivera's wife while she was alive and painting, it wasn't until the 1970s that art historians rediscovered her work and began to recognize her contribution to Mexican folk art. Amazing to think she produced such amazing art with bold political statements and all the while people only recognized her husband's work.
Such a courageous woman with big ambitions! I hope Amelia survived that plane crash and is hanging out on a tropical island living it up Swiss Family Robinson style with plenty of jungle pals. Who knows, a mystery of the ages.
