Ruby Jones is an illustrator from Aotearoa New Zealand. She likes to make art that shines a little light on the everyday moments we share with ourselves, each other, and the world around us.

Ruby’s illustrations often explore ideas around love, relationships, mental health, and body image. She is best known for her drawing of two women embracing in a hug with the words ‘this is your home and you should have been safe here’ which was shared widely online following the 2019 Christchurch terror attacks. 
Since then, Ruby has illustrated a cover for Time magazine, and worked on campaigns with Amnesty International, Nespresso, BIC, Accor Hotels, HP, Invivo X SJP, and many more. She has also released two books with Penguin Random House, All Of This Is For You (2019) and In This Body (2022).
