The doodles created by Gracki are casually done, sometimes carefully thought out stories, showing the ongoing adventures of her own characters. Other times, they are the product of daydreams, wondering what would happen if Rhinos tried to play soccer or how a giraffe would be treated at an amusement park. 

They could be described as cute, but not in a way that you would describe a somewhat foolish action of a child, or seemingly unsensible action of a small animal. So they are cute, but they are also beautiful. They combine a bright, childlike imagination with a much more mature wit. And they are done with a visual cohesiveness and open narrative that has created a style and story of its own, always leaving you wanting to see the next one.
