3 & 1/2 Questions: Gemma Correll


3 & 1/2 Questions: Gemma Correll


HI Doodlers! I can’t tell you how excited I am to have Gemma Correll as our guest on 3 & 1/2 Questions! I have been a fan of her funny cards and comics for a few years. She is one of those artists I admire online, and think, how cool would it be to have them for a friend?


Gemma Correll, witty worrier and pug lover, has a series of doodling books from Walter Foster Publishing: Doodling for Dog PeopleDoodling for Cat PeopleDoodling for Fashionistas, and Doodling for Foodies. We asked her about her upcoming Doodling for Tree Huggers & Nature Lovers (due out next month! Download a couple of doodling pages from Gemma’s book here.)


How did you “research” this book? (Did you take many camping trips?)

I live in an area of England surrounded by countryside, so it was quite easy for me to go out and hike in nature. I must admit that I didn’t take any camping trips, although I have done in the past. I also thought back to my days as a Brownie and a Girl Guide, and the camping trips I went on as a child. We went on a lot of family holidays to Scotland, which involved lots of hiking and walking in nature (and in the rain!) — Also, I’m lucky to live near the coast here in Norwich, so I was able to go and look at shells and sea life in person.


How is drawing outdoors different than drawing indoors?

Well, there’s the weather to contend with (especially here in the UK!) — also, there are more opportunities to draw from real life, which is always better than drawing from photos. When drawing outdoors, you learn to draw quickly and without worrying too much about mistakes, because you never know when the squirrel is going to move / when it’s going to start pouring down with rain.


How did you get the bear to pose for the cover? What song is he playing?

I had to bribe him with fudge. He’s playing something he wrote himself. Did you know that bears are very talented composers? Although they struggle to pluck the guitar strings since their paws are so big.


Please complete this sentence:  I like to draw ____.

a pug

Thanks so much Gemma Correll! Don’t forget to check out Gemma’s Four Eyes comics at GoComics and medium.
