Ruby Jones is a young Wellington-based artist and writer whose messages of hope and kindness captured the zeitgeist and gained worldwide attention after the March 2019 Christchurch terrorist attacks, when she shared her illustration featuring two women embracing, penned with the words ‘This is your home and you should have been safe here.’ A few days on from the attacks, Ruby was asked to illustrate a cover for Time magazine. Since then, her work has been shared widely and has appeared online with Buzzfeed, i-D, Vogue, Marie Claire and Nadia magazine. All Of This Is For You is her first book and a bestseller that has been translated into many languages around the world.
