When her mother was worn out from caring for her five sisters, her father gave her lessons in brushwork and color. When polio kept her bedridden for nine months, drawing saved her from boredom. When a bus accident left her in unimaginable agony, her paintings expressed her pain and depression - and eventually, her joys and her loves. Over and over again, Frida Kahlo turned the challenges of her life into art. Now Jonah Winter and Ana Juan have drawn on both the art and the life to create a playful, insightful tribute to one of the twentieth century's most influential artists. Viva Frida!
With its stylistic characters and vivid colors, manga has captured the imagination of millions. However, creating it from nothing can be difficult, no matter how inventive an artist is. But now, following the success of Manga Matrix, which taught readers how to create manga characters, Super Manga Matrix will inspire and guide them to create both manga characters and manga stories!
