Anastasia Higginbotham makes picture books for children. The artwork featured here includes draft collage illustrations for Divorce Is the Worst, published in April 2015 by the Feminist Press, and Death Is Stupid, to be published in April 2016. The Ordinary Terrible Things series tells stories of children who navigate trouble with their senses sharp and souls intact. Help may come from family, counselors, teachers, and dreams--but it's the children who find their own way through. The activities sections in both books encourages readers to use scraps from their own lives to make something beautiful, and reminds children: "You may not control everything that happens in your life, but it's still your life, your story."
