Zen Pencils is a great cartoonist who turns strong words into even stronger images. I love how he makes poems come to life. Such as Phenomenal Woman by Maya Angelou.

First the wonderful cartoon by Zen Pencils, then the full text of the poem (under read more). If you like Maya Angelou, also watch the video by Natalie Patterson with A Tribute To Maya Angelou, al the way down this post.
