When Jenny Lawson is anxious, one of the things she does is to draw. Elaborate doodles, beautiful illustrations, often with captions that she posts online. At her signings, fans show up with printouts of these drawings for Jenny to autograph. And inevitably they ask her when will she publish a whole book of them. That moment has arrived. You Are Here is something only Jenny could create. A combination of inspiration, therapy, coloring, humor, and advice, this book is filled with Jennys amazingly intricate illustrations, all on perforated pages that can be easily torn out, hung up, and shared. Drawing on the tenets of art therapywhich you can do while hiding in the pillow fort under your bedYou Are Here is ready to be made entirely your own. Some of the material is dark, some is light; some is silly and profane and irreverent. Gathered together, this is life, happening right now, all around, in its messy glory, as only Jenny Lawson could show us. -- Amazon.… (més)

This book is dedicated to my chronic anxiety.

You are literally always there for me, and you accidentally forced me to make this book to help save me from you. You deserve a vacation.

No, really. Go. We're fine here.

And more importantly, it's dedicated to the people on the Internet who sit with me (in spirit) while I hide away from the world. You have the key to my pillow fort. Always.


I recently told a friend that I have been struggling with depression for two years. (I mean, I've always had depression in my life; it went to all the schools with me, goes to work with me, sits in that one corner of my living room all the time. But the last two years it has decided, for reasons even I don't even fully understand, to take the proverbial baseball bat to my ability to function, and it's been a little rough. So that's what I was relating.) She paused, then asked me if I'd looked into getting medicated. Because people generally assume that's where we are with depression. That we have a pill to fix it now, and if you haven't gotten it fixed then you're probably choosing to suffer. I don't relate this to blame my friend, but just as a general cultural reference for where we are with the acceptance of this sort of illness in society.

Enter Jenny Lawson. She has now written three books relating her personal mental and emotional struggles. This one happens to be a coloring book made of pictures that she largely drew while suffering from panic attacks on her book tour for the last one. And that really is what makes it work. She gets it. She has been through it. There is the occasional platitude in here, but they are interspersed with musings on what it might have been like to title the book DON'T POISON EVERYONE, the fury of terrified rabbits, and the practicality of having someone to rob if things don't improve. I am deeply grateful for this woman, and I hope she continues to share her misadventures with anxiety and depression for a long time, both because I like to laugh along with her, and because the world continues to need her. To need people who will stand up and say, "I'm broken, and you can't fix me, but that's fine." It's a stance I try to take myself, and I enjoy and admire the company.

Anyway, good book. Have a picture.

Holy shit you guys! The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck can blatantly fuck off while I re-read this! The greatest book saying you're a little weird and a little scarred and a little scared and none of that matters cause...you are here. That's it. Just here. Just being you. Just trying. Oh, and there's pretty coloring bookish type pictures with inspirational quotes and shit so now I feel fancy-esque and just typed this whole thing with my pinkie out! ( )

This was the perfect first book for the New Year, and one of the more useful mental health books I've ever read. Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, is upfront about her struggles against her own mind and the blessings and curses along the way. I can relate. What I appreciate about this is that it feels like anecdotes and conversation with a friend who gets it--this isn't some preachy doctor telling you think this or do this and you'll be "normal." Nope. What the heck is normal, anyway?

The books features Jenny's own line drawings throughout, and she encourages readers to use it as a coloring book or for destructive art or anything they want. The art is pleasant to behold and I enjoyed reading the text she worked into the images.

I think I'll be keeping You Are Here within arm's reach to flip through as needed to help me through 2019. ( )
