Tragidoodles: A Review

Tragidoodles: A Review

My mate Ben Cameron (no relations) has a book coming out next week (Nov 3rd). I participated in crowd funding it so I got it early and it’s great. My Goodread’s review is below:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars.

This book is great. The illustration style is cute, simple, and full of character. It’s the Ronseal of books, in that this is definitely a book of TRAGIC doodles. Some of them sank even my cold heart. Most will make you laugh and then feel guilty about it.

My favourite thing about this book is the way Ben Cameron brings life to simple things like leaves, or the bubbles in a carbonated drink. Each of these panels says something about life or what it means to be human.

Also, dogs! I enjoyed the dog doodles most. There’s just something about the way dogs want their owner’s complete love and attention which makes them so desperate. Ben’s portrayals of dogs are perfect.

There’s quite a few dead animals spread throughout the book which I found less clever than the other doodles, but there are one-hundred doodles in here of which I throughly enjoyed ninety.

Leave this book on your coffee table and ruin/make your guest’s day.
