Australian artist Celeste Mountjoy (aka Filthyratbag) aims for the heart in her first book, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, a stunningly original collection of illustrations and observations on being young, female and occasionally seriously fucked off. Unnerving, empowering, heartbreaking and hilarious, Celeste's art explores anxiety, feminism, addiction, body image, relationships and societal expectations. With uncanny precision, it articulates the dark stuff we feel but dare not show and provides the perfect antidote to the cultivated ideals of Instagram. With an online audience of 800,000, Celeste has become a voice for a generation of women who are no longer prepared to smile politely at the outrages, uncertainties and absurdities of life on the path to adulthood.
