Jessie Cave is a one-woman talent volcano: comedian, actress, writer and illustrator. She got her break playing Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter films, and has done lots of TV work including most recently Call the Midwife and Sky’s Trollied. She has several scripted projects in development and her YouTube channel, Pindippy, showcases her comedy sketches and short films. Her first stand-up show, Bookworm, had two sell-out runs at the Soho Theatre, topped recently by her second show, I Loved Her, which had three sell-out runs towards the end of 2015.


Her first book of illustrations, LOVE SICK, was published by Ebury in 2015. It stemmed from the huge success of her daily online doodles about love. She also has a greetings card range with CardMix.



Publication DetailsNotes




Jessie Cave is a successful actress, comedian, writer and artist. But just like all other young women in the twenty-first-century, she suffers from self-doubt, jealousy, a fear of failure and constant worry. In 2010 Jessie decided to take up a self-tasked mission – to draw a doodle a day for Twitter. No matter what the subject, and no matter how personal, she would post a new drawing each day without fail, with it soon becoming a cathartic compulsion.

The doodles in this book cover all the aspects of liking someone, dating, falling in love, friendship and breaking-up – essentially becoming entirely Love Sick. They are all born from the confusing and often embarrassing moments, feelings and situations that every woman faces in her day to day dating life, the stories that instantly become hilarious anecdotes to share with friends. All the doodles will make you laugh with recognition and you will want to give the book to everyone.

This intelligent and witty book is the perfect collection of uplifting doodles that every young woman can relate to, laugh with and enjoy.
