Äni Jaatinen’s graphic novel My Rosy Road centers around a tragic event that almost ended her life and in so doing changed it completely.
The graphic novel and the artworks convey the emotions and experiences of what it’s like to go through a serious neurological disorder – to lose all the capabilities you take for granted – and then slowly win them back.
My Rosy Road is a story that isn’t actually very rosy at all. It was a unique experience which ultimately became a turning point in Äni’s life.
Äni is a Finnish artist and graphic designer who’s earlier works consist of paintings of the TYKS hematology ward, Vantaa city hall, coloring books, live illustrations from various events and artistic collaborations with companies such as Microsoft and Huawei.
