This Doodle Boy was punished for his art
Joe Whale loved scribbling and drawing on his textbooks. And though his sketches gained praise, they mostly were also the reason for him being punished. You can’t keep doodling on your maths and English notebooks in class, can you? And need to listen to teachers, especially when you’re a 10-year-old kid.
But his parents took notice and put him in after-school art class. And from there his skills started getting noticed. Joe is so good in doodling that now he’s called Doodle Boy.
So much so that he’s also given a job in his hometown, Shrewsbury in England, where he has to paint the walls of a restaurant.
He also has social media accounts under his name which are managed by his parents which share his latest artwork with his fans.
So next time you think you liked something, tell your parents about your interest and maybe it would take you places too!
