This cartoon summarizes the inspiring life of Frida Kahlo

This comic by Philadelphia-based comedy writer and cartoonist Sissy Biscuit serves as an ode to Frida Kahlo's storied life. Like the famed Mexican painter, Biscuit also had a near death experience when she was a teenager. She told The Huffington Post that Lyme disease left her bedridden for several months when she was just 14. During that time, the aspiring artist found solace in art history books and immediately fell in love with the work of Kahlo.

"To say I fell in love with her would be an understatement," she said. "She was so bold and honest about her situation." For more from Sissy Biscuit, be sure to check out her blog.
