It's All Absolutely Fine
Life is complicated, so I've drawn it instead
By Ruby Elliot
Funny, sad and fearless drawings exploring the light and dark side of being human.
'Her skilled scribblings ... give you the strength to carry on' Felicity Morse, iNewsIf you've ever looked around and thought, 'What is going on? Who am I? When is it dinner?', or maybe you haven't found a way to explain why you are currently melting into a puddle of your sadness, or if you just want to see a shark called Dave I drew this one time, then this book, filled with drawings about all the terrible and strange and hilarious things life can do at you, will almost certainly be something you'll probably enjoy.***Opening up about her own struggles with mental health, Ruby draws about everything from depression, body image and eating disorders to anxiety, low self-esteem and working out how to be a 'grown up' in the most inverted comma-y sense of the word.
