Frida in Full Bloom
Look what I managed to get my hands on...an edition of the 'Womankind' magazine featuring Frida Kahlo! Isn't the cover just glorious? It was created by the remarkable illustrator and visual designer Charles Tsevis. I only recently discovered this new magazine; Frida is issue #4. To quote Nicola Medrano on the Womankind magazine Facebook page "It is filled with interesting, thought provoking, inspirational articles and presented beautifully". I couldn't agree more! It is a beautifully-designed, ad-free magazine for women.
My sister introduced me to the wonderful art of Frida Kahlo many years ago. I fell in love with Frida's surreal self-portraits, her intense stare and striking look, and was captivated with her extraordinary story. Really, I actually bought this magazine as a gift for my sister - but not before I took a five minute break to have a flick through its pages. Shhh! Don't tell her! After all, its share and share alike I say!
Issue #5 is available now at the newsstands and I couldn't pass it by, I just had to buy it. The cover art, another exquisite Charles Tsevis mosaic, is filled with Celtic and Irish symbols and objects. How could I resist?
I am looking forward to putting my feet up and reading the magazine at leisure over the weekend. I hope you also manage to get some time to relax and take pleasure in doing something just for you!
Is Womankind magazine available where you live? If you have had the opportunity to read any of the issues I would really love to read your feedback.
Until Next time, Happy Creating!
