This illustration has taken a year and a half to get to my cutting room floor, I am so excited to present you with it. It's from my own digital illustration and printed in the UK,
There are two fabric options for back panel:
One of the reasons it has taken me so long to produce this body of work is the quality of the trimmings, I have made capes and beaded fringed jackets ever since I started Beksie's robe has always been on the list but I really wanted tassel trimmings, so here it is, I have found Ivory and black tassel fringes and they are exquisite.
Frida has been a very important female figure throughout my art education, she was one of my first heroines, learning about here in school and feeling great empathy and power when finding more about her life and journey, the hardships she endured and her passion to go on. After injuring my back when I was 17 this imaginary bond I had with her only grew stronger, now when I am in pain or think that I can not do something, I think 'What would Frida do' she gives me the mind over matter can do attitude and inspires me everyday to achieve. This drawing is a homage to her, her beauty and her power.
