Book Review / Tragidoodles by Ben Cameron

Ben Cameron’s tragidoodles have been hailed as “the most upsetting doodles in the world” (Mirror) and as the work of “an artist with a knack for pulling on the internet’s heartstrings” (Buzzfeed).

This first-ever printed collection brings together Ben’s most popular, heartbreaking, bittersweet and endlessly witty cartoons, combining his viral creations with brand new, never-before-shared illustrations. Flip through and witness the dinosaurs’ final moments on Earth, a melting candle facing its all but certain demise, a hedgehog who’s just looking for love, an existential bear and a host of other creatures who are just trying to make it through the day.

Packed with 101 illustrations that will make you sad, make you laugh, and then make you feel bad for laughing, Tragidoodles is a must-have collection and the perfect Christmas gift.

Despite the tragic nature of this book, it really was great fun to read and adore the doodles and the pictures are that, doodles.  There's nothing complicated about the pictures, I appreciated them for what they were and the messages they stood for.   For me, not all of the doodles were tragic.  Some were sad and some just made me laugh out loud.  

This would be a great book to pick up as a gift, especially for Christmas as it is just around the corner :-)
