Y ELLA ES FLAMA QUE SE ELEVA (2019)
“Y ella es flama que se eleva” is a comic about the painter Frida Kahlo. It’s a short comic that focuses mainly on her early life, her accident and her paintings. I wanted to tell a story about frida kahlo without mentioning her husband, seeing as she was known as “diego rivera’s wife” up until the late 70s. i wanted to focus on her, and her alone.
The comic is FIVE pages long, three panels per page and told with captions.
The spanish title means “and she is a rising flame” and is from the song “benediction and dream” by lila downs.
