‘A dad’s account of heartbreak and hope’ Daily Mail In 2017, illustrator and animator Gary Andrews suddenly lost his wife, Joy, to sepsis, leaving him a widower and single father to two young children.
As a way of coping, Gary posted a doodle a day on Twitter, illustrating the ups and downs of family life after Joy’s death. His drawings, which depict his and his children’s pain, love and humour with an extraordinary honesty, have since resonated with people all over the world and have been shared tens of thousands of times online.
Finding Joy brings together old and new drawings to tell Gary’s story. The result is an astonishingly movingly, often funny and ultimately life affirming book that will help anyone on a grief journey of their own.
