LOVE SICK

2015

Ebury

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.
