Gravel’s nutty imag­i­na­tion and hu­mour are vi­tally ap­par­ent in this ver­sion of her per­sonal sketch­book. In part she gives tips to artists but mostly, she shows how ac­ces­si­ble and fun draw­ing can be. “In my note­book … I give my­self the right to fail, to mess up, to cre­ate ugly draw­ings …” she writes. Then we view pages and pages of vi­brantly coloured, wacky crea­tures, plants, worm slip­pers and even a fart fes­ti­val. for those who are just be­gin­ning. Good for doo­dlers, would-be car­toon­ists and any­one with a fist­ful of mark­ers and a sense of hu­mour.
